You may already have a bird feeder in your yard, but this book will teach you how to create a bird-friendly landscape. With profiles of hundreds of native plants, extensive seasonal blooming and fruiting charts, and techniques for creating a balanced ecosystem, this book helps you turn any space—from a small, urban terrace to a large suburban yard—into a habitat for a fascinating variety of birds. The book is split into four parts. Part one introduces you to the basics of planning and creating a bird-friendly garden. Then, the author guides you through understanding how your yard fits into the larger ecology of your region. Part three encompasses a plant directory, a detailed guide to important North American native plants that provide food, shelter, and nesting sites for local birds. Finally, you'll find a bird directory.
