Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seeds work like magic to bring colorful birds into close view, but when special treats like homemade

bird doughs and fresh fruit are offered, remarkable visitors like waxwings, orioles, and thrashers stop

by for a treat. Add in seed-rich ornamental grasses and fruiting shrubs, and birds will find the scene

irresistable.

 

Touting the latest research on what and when birds eat, Secrets of Backyard Bird-Feeding Success

explains how nutritious food at key times of the year (during egg laying, migration, and harsh weather)

can mean survival—or not—for feathered friends. From seeds and suet to plants and feeding stations,

readers will learn easy, practical, and low-cost ways to entice birds into stopping by regularly, along with tips on specific types of bird-friendly fare, such as nuts, nectar, berries, and even bugs! A gallery of the 50 most popular backyard feeder birds lists their preferred foods and feeder styles plus behavior and migration details so readers can anticipate and prepare for a specific bird’s arrival.

 
Feeding backyard birds is a win-win situation for both bird and birder—the birds get a reliable source

of food and bird lovers get lively song, color, and motion in their welcoming backyards.

Synopsis:

Discover the joys of attracting winged wonders to your backyard. From seeds and suet to the best bird-attracting plants and other bird-friendly fare, youll find easy, practical, and low-cost ways to entice birds into stopping by regularly. Youll learn the best tips and secrets from experienced birders, experts, and longtime backyard bird-feeders to welcome birds to every part of your yard and garden.

Learn why your feeders may be packed with visitors at certain times of the year and com-pletely ignored at other times—and how you can keep birds coming to your landscape even when they have little interest in traditional seed feeders. Offer a variety of foods, such as seeds, nuts, nectar, berries, and even bugs at the right time of year, and youll be amazed at who shows up to dine. Add a few special features to your landscape, such as a birdbath or small fountain, and keep company with birds every day of the year. Find 100 of the most popular backyard feeder birds in the gallery and discover their preferred foods and feeder styles, along with behavior and migration details so you can anticipate and prepare for your favorite birds arrival.
