Revised and updated, this new edition of a much sought-after classic remains the best source for information about the trees, shrubs, and vines that provide bird habitats and feeding sources in the United States and Canada from the Atlantic coast to the Rocky Mountains and beyond. More than 160 species of trees, shrubs, and vines that provide food, cover, and nesting for common North American birds are highlighted, with instructions on designing a landscape habitat that attracts desired bird species.
For each plant species the author provides a description, flowering and fruiting periods, preferred habitat conditions, growing ranges, and hardiness zones. Detailed instructions cover propagation, transplantation, landscape, and site requirements. The new edition includes updated data, expanded bird/plant preference indexes, 24 new photographs of trees and plants in actual backyard habitats, and 64 detailed drawings of branches, leaves, and berries for easy identification.
