About this book

Practical Projects to Make 40 Bird Boxes, Feeders and Birdbaths shows you how to attract birds to your garden by creating nest boxes, roosts, birdhouses, dovecotes, tables, feeding stations and birdbaths. It explains what to feed garden birds, from seeds, grains and live food to fruits, nuts and fat balls, and suggests the best places to position your feeders and boxes. Each project is presented in step-by-step detail, with a photograph of the finished structure and a list of the typical visitors that it may attract.

Birds are a joy in the garden, not only for their beauty and birdsong, but also because they eat harmful garden pests, and this book shows how to attract them with food, water and places to shelter. There is a wide range of feeder types, from wire hanging feeders and bird tables to copper and chrome birdbaths, as well as nest boxes, birdhouses and roosts. A chart at the back of Practical Projects to Make 40 Bird Boxes, Feeders and Birdbaths specifies box dimensions for the most common garden species, helping you to match your design to the birds you want to attract. With its easy-to-follow instructions and 380 photographs, this book is a must for everyone who wants to help their local feathered community.
