The only thing more I could ask for is more suggestions for the arrangements (with diagrams) of native plant-life and perhaps specific types of plants that specific types of birds tend to enjoy. The photos are beautiful and inspiring, and the information is useful, though it still recommends visiting plant nurseries and wild bird stores to get expert advice. If I could find those experts, I wouldn't have waited forever to get this book in the mail. ;)
I gave this book to my husband for Christmas (but secretly for me). We live in a relatively new development with 80 acres of common property including woods, ponds, and meadows (formerly farm fields) which need to be developed into natural habitats.This book is a great reference.
A Beautiful and comprehensive book by Mariette Nowak. She certainly has the knowledge and presents it clearly. Definitely motivates one to get started in providing a space for our winged friends, no matter what your outdoor space consists of.
This is a great book for Wisconsin birders. It offers lots of info on bird-friendly plants and landscaping techniques. It would be great for other Midwest states, too. It really packages a lot of info together.
Doug Tallamy's "Bringing Nature Home" taught us WHY we need to use native plants in our landscapes, Mariette Nowak teaches us the HOW. Great, great book for anyone in the Midwest interested in wildlife and the plants that sustain them. I am buying a few for holiday gifts.
