“This book will put you on the road to supporting and enjoying the life around you.”—Douglas W. Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home
You may already have a bird feeder in your yard, but you can attract a far wider range of species, and they will stay longer, if you create a bird-friendly landscape. Gardening for the Birds shows you how. With profiles of hundreds of native plants, extensive seasonal bloom and fruiting charts, and techniques for creating a balanced ecosystem, this book helps you turn any space—from a small, urban terrace to a large suburban yard—into a home for a fascinating variety of birds. Close-up profiles of birds from across all regions of North America teach you their nesting, breeding, and feeding habits.
