"It happens to the best of us--it's the height of feeder season, the yard is filled with customers, and you realize the birdseed can is empty. I learned my solution at my mother's knee--ransack the kitchen for anything remotely edible! Stale bread, withered fruit, and peanut butter are all fine fill-in-the-gap foods."

Pull up a chair next to the window looking out on your bird feeder and join author Sally Roth in an informative, inspirational, and often light-hearted look at the foods, feeders, and plants that invite birds to visit your feeding station. From fast foods and freezer treats to innovative ways of serving up leftovers, you'll find plenty of creative ideas for keeping your feeders filled when hungry birds are crowding the perches. Sally shares a lifetime's worth of bird-feeding experiences, including:

- which foods attract which birds
- helpful hints on choosing and maintaining feeders
- the best bird-attracting frutis and flowers to plant
- and much, much more!

You'll learn about the birds that visit feeders, too: how to identify them, how they behave, and which feeder foods they like the best. What's more, you'll discover a wealth of tips for turning your landscape into a bird haven that will ring with birdsong all year long. On every page of The Backyard Birdfeeder's Bible, Sally Roth shows you how to make your bird-feeding efforts more satisfying, more successful, and definitely more fun. Put her knowledge to work in your yard and enjoy the endlessly fascinating beauty of wild birds.

"I was amazed by the wealth of information in The Backyard Bird Feeder's Bible by Sally Roth! The book goes far beyond the traditional books on backyard bird feeding, offering information on flowers to plant, edible wreaths to make, clever ideas for birdbaths, and recipes using leftover food to supplement normal birdseed and suet. You will certainly attract more birds using the suggestions in The Backyard Bird Feeder's Bible. If you can only buy one backyard bird book, this is THE book to run out and get!"
