Overview

Watching birds in the garden is a real treat and providing food, water, and safe places to nest will ensure that you have birds visiting your garden all year round. With 35 beautiful projects, this book shows you how to create stylish homes for all sorts of birds, as well as attractive feeders. Many of the birdhouses in the book follow a basic shape, each one decorated and finished in a different way. There are also projects for wall-mounted and multi-storey birdhouses. Most importantly, these birdhouses are designed to suit the needs of nesting birds, with ventilation, drainage, clean-out doors, and dimensions that are suitable for their future occupants. Using just basic woodworking skills, each project has clear, step-by-step instructions and illustrations and beautiful photography that will guide even the novice woodworker.
