The Backyard Bird Lover's Ultimate How-to Guide by Sally Roth is a comprehensive A-to-Z handbook for the foods and feeders, plants and projects that will guarantee a bird-friendly backyard

One of the joys of spending time in the backyard is observing the birds. This acorns-to-wrens guide helps readers create a backyard that's right for them and right for their local birds.

The book targets all skill levels, offering new birders plenty of basics while intriguing longtime birdwatchers with new ideas. Here readers will learn:
* which birdhouses are a smart buy and which ones to leave on the shelf
* how to choose a birdseed mix to attract colorful songbirds--rather than pesky crows
* why easy homemade suet blocks are irresistable to hungry birds in every season
* how to offer shelter to species dealing with disappearing natural habitats

Along with the ins and outs of feeding, behavior, nesting, and gardening advice, each of the 200-plus entries is sprinkled with super-simple step-by-step projects, bird treat recipes, and planting ideas, along with plenty of fascinating bird lore and Roth's own observations on bird behavior.
