The Birdfeeder's Handbookby Sheila Buff
Millions of people everywhere feed birds - from sparrows to hummingbirds - for the joy of daily contact with birds and to learn about their habits. Here is a practical introduction to birdfeeding, probably the easiest and most enjoyable way to come in intimate contact with the natural world. Beginning with a thorough introduction on what birds to expect in backyards throughout the country, the book goes on to discuss different types of feeders, from the simplest platform feeders to elaborate window-mounted types, and offers practical advice about dealing with squirrels and other pests. Also included is information on different types of bird food, providing nesting sites and structures in the yard, landscaping to attract birds, and an invaluable listing of information resources.
