Even the smallest garden attracts some birdlife, and watching garden birds is a great joy for all nature lovers, especially those who cannot travel as widely as they might like. Garden birdwatchers are often new to birdwatching and can feel daunted by the array of species covered in even a small field guide to British birds. This beautiful book focuses wholly on birds that are frequent garden visitors to the UK and reveals details of how they live, how you can bring them into your garden and boost their survival and breeding success, and how to identify them. It is divided into logical categories for the non-expert. Forty-seven garden bird species are treated in detail over two or four pages, with more extended accounts for the most widely observed garden species. Marianne Taylor looks at each species' life history, behaviour and breeding habits, advising how to attract and support each bird in your garden, as well as sorting out all common identification conundrums. Chapters are interspersed with spreads on general practicalities of garden birdwatching and managing a wildlife garden. More than 200 spectacular photographs will reveal every detail of our garden birds' appearance and behaviour and side-by-side images are included for more difficult-to-identify species. The final chapter deals with birds that are welcome but less regular visitors and encourages readers to venture into the wider world of birdwatching.

“An engaging and inspiring comprehensive guide.” —Booklist “A great benefit of creating a bird-friendly landscape is enjoying your garden while watching a bluebird dropping in for a worm in a freshly dug patch, a phoebe snapping at insects, or a hummingbird probing nectar-rich flowers while robins sing in the trees.” With the right native plants, arranged to mimic natural ecosystems, you will provide birds with food, water, shelter, and nesting places. Instead of just visiting your garden to snack, birds will call it home!

"South Florida is a unique and spectacular environment for both birding and gardening, and this is a thorough and enjoyable guide."--Carl Lewis, director, Fairchild Tropical Gardens "A step-by-step guide on how to create a garden that not only benefits birds but increases your enjoyment of your yard, patio, or balconies. No space is too small for helping birds, and this book tells you how to do it."--Stephen D. Pearson, director, University of Miami's John G. Gifford Arboretum "For all South Floridians concerned about vanishing stopover habitat and hoping to contribute to the re-greening of Florida in their own backyards, Attracting Birds to South Florida Gardens is essential reading."--Brian Rapoza, author of Birding Florida Lush and warm, South Florida is a gardener's dream and a birder's delight. James Kushlan and Kirsten Hines draw on their years of experience to provide practical, ecologically sound advice for creating landscapes that will appeal to the many birds that can be found in the region. Aimed primarily at backyard gardeners and birders, but applicable for commercial landscapers as well, their precepts can be applied to a broad range of outdoor spaces, from balconies to suburban yards to rural estates. The authors identify plants that provide food or shelter and explain how each can attract specific bird species. They also explain what plants work well together, offer advice on simplifying garden maintenance, and provide tips on how other elements can make an area avian-friendly. Filled with brilliant photographs, Attracting Birds to South Florida Gardens addresses a conspicuous void in the literature on two of America's most popular activities.
