Description

A birdhouse can be as simple as a recycled detergent bottle, or as elaborate as a miniature Bavarian castle. It might be constructed as bent twigs, old barn wood, or whitewashed cedar. Whatever form it takes, the birdhouse will always remain a symbol of the beneficence of nature and the extraordinary beauty of birds. The New Birdhouse Book is a history as well as a celebration of avian housing that will inspire and guide you as you create your own birdhouse. It includes detailed plans for a wide range of designs from a simple nest box to an elegant plantation house. It features a comprehensive section on birdhouse basics and is packed with practical pointers that will guide the reader in matching the right birdhouse with the right species, as well as advice in stocking feeders and maintaining houses year-round. It also provides suggestions for using birdhouses as design accents in the garden or home and advice on what to look for, where to shop, and how much to pay for authentic birdhouses. This fascinating book, with its charming and inspirational photos, provides endless ideas and a range of plans detailing housing solutions for our feathered friends.
