"Two of the best-known names in birding--Peterson and Bird Watcher's Digest--team up to provide reliable, expert advice on how to attract the birds you want into your yard. Which birds use nest boxes? What's required to maintain a birdhouse? What kind of habitat will attract which birds? What does it take to be a bluebird trail operator? What does it mean if baby birds or eggs disappear from their nest? Bill Thompson III answers all of these questions and more, helping readers to create yards and gardens where birds will make their homes and raise their young. It's easy enough to hang a birdfeeder. But there are plenty of other things that can attract birds to a landscape--and, in fact, birds need four essentials: food, water, shelter, and a place to nest. The more of these elements a yard has, the more attractive it is to birds.

Growing up my dad always put out bird seed in the winter and it was something I continued when I married and moved away. It was fun to watch the birds that came around and I've wondered what I could do to encourage more than just the regular house sparrows and house finches that usually dominate the feeders. Offering different seed (like thistle) helped to a point, but what if I wanted even more variety? This book covers a lot of the usual information to make your yard a "bird-friendly habitat" like the need for food, water, shelter, and a place to next and is perhaps a little better than most in offering specifics. There are a number of "top ten" lists and such that are helpful, and it's quite well-written.

It has specific birdhouse instructions for chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, wrens, swallows, purple martins, bluebirds, robins, flycatchers, woodpeckers, owls, American Kestrels, Prothonotary warblers, and ducks (mainly wood ducks). It also talks extensively about making sure your bird tennants are safe from predators, and I was disappointed to see the recommendation is usually a very large and usightly baffle. The "Birdy Backyard All-Stars" was also interesting, where it profiles 15 ordinary people and what they've done.

Maybe I was expecting too much, particularly with the blurb that says "the best-known names in birding," but overall I'm not sure it covers much ground I haven't already seen elsewhere. Still, it's the kind of book I like to have for a lazy Sunday afternoon when it's too cold to go outside. ( )
