"This is a lovely guide to making and maintaining a garden that will attract various species of birds."--Bird Watcher's Digest

"Garden Birds is an immensely informative, beautifully illustrated, comprehensive guide to transforming any garden into a haven for birds."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

From Library Journal:

Garden Birds consists mostly of species accounts of 100 birds. For each there is a page with a mediocre painting, a range map, and a basic description including its habits, food and vegetation preferences, nest, how to attract it, etc. Although an expansive philosophy is commendable it is stretching the imagination to consider a few of these species, such as green-backed heron or red-tailed hawk, as garden birds. Brief introductory sections touch on the bird garden, gardening for birds, food and feeders, and birdhouses. It is a virtue that birds of the East and West are included. There are already several excellent guides to attracting birds, ranging from J. Terres's classic and still useful Songbirds in Your Garden to S. Kress's Audubon Society Guide to Attracting Birds (Scribner, 1985). This latest, by a recognized Connecticut ornithologist, is well enough done but adds little. Henry T. Armistead, Thomas Jefferson University Lib., Philadelphia
