Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two of the best-known names in birdingandmdash;Peterson and Bird Watcherandrsquo;s Digestandmdash;team up to provide reliable, expert advice on how to attract the birds you want into your yard.

Which birds use nest boxes? Whatandrsquo;s required to maintain a birdhouse? What kind of habitat will attract which birds? What does it take to be a bluebird trail operator? What does it mean if baby birds or eggs disappear from their nest?

Bill Thompson III answers all of these questions and more, helping readers to create yards and gardens where birds will make their homes and raise their young.

Itandrsquo;s easy enough to hang a birdfeeder. But there are plenty of other things that can attract birds to a landscapeandmdash;and, in fact, birds need four essentials: food, water, shelter, and a place to nest. The more of these elements a yard has, the more attractive it is to birds.

A lavishly illustrated chapter provides ideas and inspiration for creating bird havens by profiling andldquo;Birdy Backyard All-Stars,andrdquo; fifteen homeowners from around the country who have actively worked to create bird-friendly habitats.

Synopsis:

Rounding out the series that includes Identifying and Feeding Birds and Hummingbirds and Butterflies, Bird Homes and Habitats helps homeowners enhance their backyards even more with advice on how to provide shelter and nests for birds.

Synopsis:

An ideal book for anyone who enjoys the added beauty that birds can bring to a garden, "Stokes Bird Gardening Book" covers every aspect of birdwatching and provides charts and garden plans for every region of the country. 300 color illustrations. 20-40 charts. 8 garden plans.
