Do you really know what's going on away from the bird feeder? Discover the private lives of your bird table regulars in this fascinating expose of the drama behind their everyday survival. There are profiles of over 50 birds, with key information for identifying and learning about their different plumage, song, food and ways you can attract them to your garden. However Garden Bird Confidential goes further than just the general profile, revealing the more secretive and intimate aspects of their existence, such as: unusual feeding behaviour; territorial conflict; strange relationships with man; and, breeding and nesting oddities. With over 200 colour photographs and artworks to help you identify your winged visitors, Garden Bird Confidential is a must for all nature lovers.
