The Ultimate Guide to Bringing in your Favorite Birds--year After YearBook - 2009
In a book that she considers her life's work, veteran gardener and naturalist Sally Roth takes the chance and happenstance out of backyard birding. Readers learn what design features and edible treats will tempt particular bird families so that their birdbaths and feeders will be overflowing with the visitors of their choice. Bird-by-Bird Gardening includes nineteen garden designs for attracting specific bird families--such as hummingbirds, nuthatches, swallows, thrushes, or wrens--as well as water projects and feeder recipes for each bird family. With Rodale's best-selling bird author to guide them, bird lovers will soon have their favorite birds lingering longer in the backyard--and revisiting year after year.
