About this book

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 the right native plants, arranged to mimic natural ecosystems, you will provide birds with food, water, shelter, and nesting places.

Instead of just visiting your garden to snack, birds will call it home.With hundreds of native plants, extensive seasonal bloom and fruiting charts, and the techniques for creating a balanced ecosystem, Gardening for the Birds 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.Birding and gardening are natural companions: let this rich compendium help you make your garden a sanctuary for the local bird population and yourself!
