Library Journal
Given a choice, most of us would rather live in a Japanese pagoda or a Doric temple than in a plain box. If birds feel the same way, they will be singing about Stender's designs. He has created plans for a number of birdhouses that replicate famous buildings or architectural styles. The designs include a Gothic cathedral, the Chrysler building, and an Arts and Crafts bungalow, among others. These designs are also practical, with hinged openings for cleaning and appropriate dimensions for specific species of birds (a table offers the dimensions required by 25 different species). The clear instructions are supplemented by numerous color photos; these designs are within the abilities of most woodworkers. Every public library should consider this title.
