Author(s): Ellen M. McCulloch
This is a book for domestic birdwatchers. It is full of stories of birds and their ways, helpful hints on how to attract more and rarer birds to your garden, advice on preserving their habitat and our environment, and information on the identification of birds -- from Silvereyes to Fairy-wrens and cockatoos. It shows you: how to provide water for birds; what plants attract birds to your garden; what to do when a bird flies into your window; how to build nesting boxes and much, much more. This is a book for enjoyment, for increasing the pleasure of the converted and for converting those who do not yet indulge in the most relaxing of pastimes -- birdwatching.
