I absolutely loved John Shewey’s (Amazon affiliate link) The Hummingbird Handbook. The full color photos are gorgeous and alone, are worth reading the book. Shewey has packed plenty of information in this book, from habitats to history to identification. This would be a fantastic gift for anyone who enjoys hummingbirds as well as being a great educational resource. While overall I am not a fan of Birds and Blooms magazine, Shewey has made a fantastic resource in this book.
