In Birdhousing, Peri and Charley share their delight in this new American collectible. Their interest is partly the desire to have birds singing in the garden and partly the enchantment of seeing a little weathered church rise from a thicket of roses. They have also discovered the pleasures of using collections of birdhouses to bring touches of rustic simplicity indoors.
In their travels, they have found birdhouses inside and out in New Mexico, in Oregon, in California and Connecticut. Along the way they met the folk artists who make today's birdhouses, some of whom we meet in these pages. Peri and Charley have included recipes for bird feeds and a resource section listing retail and mail-order sources for birdhousing as well seed, feeders, and garden ornaments.. And they've made a beautifully photographed book that's certain to appeal to bird lovers and antiquers alike, as well to anyone willing to indulge in the dream of owning lots of houses — in miniature.
Over 130 full-color photographs showcase a slice of Americana that embraces the romance of nature and the fantasy of collecting houses for the garden or living room. Includes recipes for bird foods and a section listing resources for birdhouses, seed, feeders, and garden ornaments.
