Most bird lovers simply put a bird feeder or bath in their yard and hope for the best, but there is much more that can be done to attract wild birds throughout the year. Like all plants and animals, birds require specific habitats, and this book is packed with ideas for creating bird-friendly gardens in any region.

Using spectacular full-color photographs, "Bird Gardens" explains the interlaced biology of birds and plants, and how readers can provide refuge to wild birds threatened by habitat loss.

A comprehensive encyclopedia of bird-attracting plants is divided into six different geographic areas. Each plant was chosen for its ability to provide food, shelter, or nesting places, and because they are highly decorative and readily available.

Regional listings of common birds and nursery sources are also included.
