Make your backyard the best little wildlife sanctuary on the block. There are many ways to attract birds and butterflies to your backyard, giving us all a chance to enjoy these beautiful, coveted creatures. But have you ever tried to tempt a turtle, lure a lizard, summon a snake, or coax a chipmunk to come and visit? The wonders of wildlife are not limited to flying specimens, as anyone with a true affection for fauna (as well as flora) will attest. In Attracting Wildlife, longtime birding and wildlife author Marcus Schneck provides a charming blend of stylized illustrations, color photos, and helpful text offering fun, educational family activities for attracting your favorite critters to your property. Using a month-by-month approach, the book lays out project after project that you can complete whether you live on a small urban lot or sprawling piece of country acreage. So the next time you're going about planting tomatoes in May, you can add a simple toad sanctuary to the list and enjoy a summer's worth of serenades.
