The Bird Garden
Hardcover ISBN: 0789401398
Birds are the most visible and familiar form of wildlife, fascinating millions with their brilliant colors, varied songs, and entertaining behavior. By planting certain carefully selected trees and shrubs, you can create an attractive landscape that will encourage a wide variety of birds to visit your backyard, whether you have acres of land or just a small garden. The National Audubon Society's Bird Garden provides a fully illustrated guide to garden birds, and the plants that will attract them, all conveniently organized into five geographic regions. Here is complete information concerning the nest, the song, and the food preferences of 100 familiar garden birds. Descriptions and lists of more than 300 trees, shrubs, and other plants explain their growth habits and cultural preferences, their hardiness, and the birds that rely on them for food or cover. Birds are often attracted to the garden by nestboxes and platforms, feeders, dust baths, and water sources. These features are described and illustrated, with clear, concise directions for construction.
