Making your own bird boxes and feeders is a rewarding and environmentally sound way to enhance any garden by attracting birds. The food we supply in winter can mean the difference between life and death for small birds, and in spring and summer bird boxes help many species to raise their families. Birdhouses, Boxes, and Feeders for the Backyard Hobbyist is an invaluable source of information for both the woodworker and the bird-lover. Woodworking experts Alan and Gill Bridgewater have teamed up with ornithologist Stephen Moss to produce a range of boxes and feeders designed to meet the needs of birds and enhance your garden. Information on box and feeder siting, appropriate food, types of nest box, and the birds you can expect to see, is featured alongside everything that you need to know about suitable woods, necessary tools and materials, and construction techniques. Seventeen projects, well illustrated with photographs and diagrams, offer concise step-by-step instructions and are suitable for novice and experienced woodworkers alike.
