Build a Fine Home for your Feathered Friends

Birds of all feathers will be flocking to your backyard to live in the beautiful houses and dine in the unique feeders you can build in just a few short hours.

Step-by-step color photos and easy-to-follow instructions will guide you along the way.

Why spend your money on a ready-made birdhouse or feeder that looks like all the rest? In one afternoon, you can build a unique bird retreat that will soon turn your backyard into a birdwatcher's paradise!
