Creating Havens for Native Birds
'The Australian Bird-Garden' is a book to excite lovers of gardens and of birds. In it Graham Pizzey draws on his extensive knowledge to delight and inform you and help you create a garden haven of your own.
Complementing chapters on how to select and grow bird-attracting flora, photos of plants and gardens, plans of nest-boxes and bird-baths and detailed tips on providing water and food is a comprehensive reference section showing 200 native garden birds, exquisitely illustrated by bird artist, Frank Knight. The text summarises key information for the gardener - the favoured location (with maps) and the food of each species, its habits and seasonal patterns, what to listen for, and how best to foster the health and well-being of our fine, feathered friends.
