Synopsis

Gardens are a haven for many birds, and millions of people enjoy watching them. But how easy is it to tell one species from another? "The Garden Bird Book" is now here to help. Packed with highly visual and easy-to-follow information, this book is a guide for anyone wanting to recognize and identify the birds that visit their garden. The book provides detailed, visual advice on how to attract birds to your garden: what types of food to put out, which bird feeders and nestboxes to go for, and what to do with seemingly 'lost' baby birds. Detailed accounts then look at the 70-plus species that occur regularly in British gardens. It includes annotated illustrations that aid easy recognition, with supporting information on key identification points, behavioural traits, breeding behaviour and feeding habits. A helpful note on confusion species is also provided, and a final section looks at some of the more unusual avian visitors to gardens. Stunningly illustrated and simple to use, "The Garden Bird Book" will teach you all you need to know about the birds in your garden and how to make the most of their presence.
