The Backyard Bird Feeder's Bible: The A-to-Z Guide to Feeders, Seed Mixes, Projects and Treats

Overview

"It happens to the best of us—it's the height of feeder season, the yard is filled with customers, and you realize the birdseed can is empty. I learned my solution at my mother's knee—ransack the kitchen for anything remotely edible! Stale bread, withered fruit, and peanut butter are all fine fill-in-the-gap foods."

Overview

"It happens to the best of us—it's the height of feeder season, the yard is filled with customers, and you realize the birdseed can is empty. I learned my solution at my mother's knee—ransack the kitchen for anything remotely edible! Stale bread, withered fruit, and peanut butter are all fine fill-in-the-gap foods."

Pull up a chair next to the window looking out on your bird feeder and join author Sally Roth in an informative, inspirational, and often light-hearted look at the foods, feeders, and plants that invite birds to visit your feeding station. From fast foods and freezer treats to innovative ways of serving up leftovers, you'll find plenty of creative ideas for keeping your feeders filled when hungry birds are crowding the perches. Sally shares a lifetime's worth of bird-feeding experiences, including:

- which foods attract which birds

- helpful hints on choosing and maintaining feeders

- the best bird-attracting frutis and flowers to plant

- and much, much more!

You'll learn about the birds that visit feeders, too: how to identify them, how they behave, and which feeder foods they like the best. What's more, you'll discover a wealth of tips for turning your landscape into a bird haven that will ring with birdsong all year long. On every page of The Backyard Birdfeeder's Bible, Sally Roth shows you how to make your bird-feeding efforts more satisfying, more successful, and definitely more fun. Put her knowledge to work in your yard and enjoy the endlessly fascinating beauty of wild birds.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Similar in layout and content to Roth s Attracting Birds to Your Backyard (Rodale, 1998), this book is both enjoyable to browse because of its color photos, line art, and call-outs and useful as a home reference because of its alphabetical arrangement. Conveying an enormous amount of information on attracting, feeding, and observing birds, the entries vary in length from half a page to multiple pages for broad or complex topics such as the benefits of fruiting plants (trees, blueberry shrubs, strawberry plants, etc.) as a source of both food and shelter. Despite some overlap with his previous title, Roth presents enough new information, techniques, and anecdotes to make this work fun, worthwhile addition likely to be as popular as similar works by John K. Terres and Mathew Tekulsky. Recommended for public libraries. Bonnie Poquette, Shorewood P.L., WI Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

    BEST WILD BIRD BOOK I'VE EVER READ

    The information in this book is incredibly satisfying for those newly interested in bird watching! I've recently purchased 3 different books on wild birds and I keep coming back to this one over and over. The author has lots of good practical ideas about landscaping for birds, feeding birds, and much, much more. If you love bird watching, you will love this book without a doubt.
