Average rating
3.3 out of 5
Based on 11 Ratings and 10 Reviews

Book Description
A prairie chicken dancing to the beat, a Red-Winged blackbird flashing his snazzy wing patches to attract a female, a grouse growing its own "snowshoes," and American robins traveling north in the spring share at least one characteristic-they all call Minnesota home at some point during the year. Birds in Our Backyard invites young ones into the lives of these winged wonders.
