How to Make 40 Beautiful Bird Boxes, Feeders and Birdbaths by Jen Green

This book shows you how to attract birds to your garden by creating nesting sites and feeding stations, illustrated with 380 photographs. It also shows how to encourage birds to your garden, with instructions for making feeders, tables, birdbaths, nest boxes, shelves and roosts, from simple wooden designs hanging from trees to ornamental and decorative birdhouses mounted on posts. It explains what to feed garden birds, from seeds, grains and live food to fruits, nuts and fat balls, and suggests the best places to position your feeders and boxes. Each project is presented in step-by-step detail, with a photograph of the finished structure and a list of the typical visitors that it may attract. Birds are a joy in the garden, not only for their beauty and birdsong, but also because they eat many harmful garden pests. To encourage birds to set up home, you also need to provide nest boxes, making sure you choose the right type for the birds you want to attract. This book contains over 40 inspirational ideas, from simple tables, birdbaths and nest boxes to more complex ornamental birdhouses and roosts that will both enhance your garden and attract a range of bird species. With its easy-to-follow instructions and 380 photographs, this book is a must for everyone who wants to help their local feathered community.
