Want to attract birds to your backyard sanctuary? This book is for you. For years, birdhouses were used to attract songbirds and protect vanishing species. Today, they are prized as folk art and desired because of the aesthetic qualities they bring to the home and garden.

From fanciful houses that resemble animal figures to more traditional designs, such as dovecote and martin houses, this exquisite book features gorgeous birdhouses and tells the stories behind them.

Author Leslie Garisto provides suggestions for using birdhouses as design accents in the garden or home and provides advice on what to look for, where to shop, and how much to pay for authentic birdhouses.

I purchased this book for my husband. He says it is informative and the plans are buildable, especially if you are not a master carpenter. Very likeable addition to our bird book collection.. Read full review
