Product description

From Library Journal

Birds have it tough, suffering through harsh winters and long migrations. The very least we can do is build them a house. These titles show a wide range of birdhouse styles, ranging from the practical and utilitarian to the decorative and fanciful. Gerhards, who has written several do-it-yourself titles for beginners, provides practical instructions for traditional birdhouses. Birds are particular about the size and shape of their home's door opening, the inside dimensions, and its height off the ground. Gerhards gives the housing requirements of a variety of birds, which will be helpful to those wanting to attract specific species. Clear step-by-step instructions explain how to build and hang a number of different types of houses for birds ranging from bluebirds to ducks and owls. A plan for a platform for nest-building birds is also included. These designs are well within the capabilities of most hobbyists. Numerous hints for attracting and observing birds are included, and instructions for feeders and information about different foods round out this highly recommended title. Rice's book contains examples of colorful and beautiful birdhouses designed more as knickknacks for people than homes for birds. It's possible that birds might take up residence, but only one door size is given, and there is no information on modifications for different species. The houses lack ventilation openings and cannot be opened for cleaning. Rice's designs and painting techniques are impressive to look at and would make pretty decorations around the house. Collections serving avid crafters should consider this title, but those who are truly interested in observing and caring for birds should choose Gerhards's book.AJonathan N.
