Specific, meaningful actions anyone can take Practical advice on feeding and attracting backyard birds How to create a bird-friendly household and community
This engaging book presents 101 things individuals can do to help both individual birds and bird populations as a whole. It also explains exactly how these actions can make a difference – what wrongs they help correct and what improvements they can bring about. Bird-friendly (and environment-friendly) practices are described in detail: things anyone can do around the home and garden, at work, at the store, in their community, in the outdoors, and on the road. Anyone who appreciates wild birds knows that the animals need our help. This timely guide shows bird-lovers what they can do.
"As the title suggests, this book presents 101 ways that you personally can help birds. The tips are broken down into several categories: helping birds at home; enhancing the natural habitat of your backyard; supplementing backyard habitat; helping birds away from home; helping birds on a larger scale. This is far more than a simple list. Each of the ways presented includes a detailed description of the problem and what we can do to help [...] Every birder should read this book. If we all do what we can to help, and encourage others to do the same, we truly can make the world better for birds, as well as all other living beings including ourselves."
