Gardening and birdwatching are not only popular hobbies; they are highly complementary. Countless people around the globe have curated their gardens to be as appealing as possible to a wide variety of bird species. With the proper know-how and the ideal combination of features, you can transform your patch into a haven for birds as well as a living laboratory for the study of bird identification, behavior, and natural history. To help you make the best choices, we have produced the portable reference Gardening for Birds. It includes step-by-step instructions for creating bird-friendly habitats; tips on planning and maintaining your birdscape; notes on water features; and suggestions for choosing the most suitable native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. To help you venture into the realm of citizen science, there are also suggestions for collecting and sharing knowledge about the birds in your garden, plus a checklist of sources for related videos, apps, and more. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is a terrific companion for educators, learners, naturalists, gardeners, birdwatchers, and homeowners. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this resource supports continued educational activities by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Made in the USA.
