Product Details

In this detailed how-to book, bluebird expert Wayne H. Davis tells how to attract and care for this beautiful and gentle bird and offers solutions to the most common bluebird problems. Since bluebirds are almost entirely dependent on people for providing nesting sites, the book contains plans for erecting a structure that will attract bluebirds to a safe habitat. Instructions for building and maintaining a “bluebirds trail,” complete with drawings of various bluebirds houses and guards against predators, are also included. David shares his plans for his specially designed Kentucky Bluebird Box—a unique bird house attractive to the Eastern Bluebird but unsuitable for the bluebird's rivals—as well an a variety of other plans for using materials as inexpensive as milk cartons and scavenged pipes.

A chapter by professional photographer Philippe Roca offers tips on photographing bluebirds. Lavishly illustrated and written in an accessible style, this book will aid in the conservation of tone of America's most beloved birds. Whether you are a beginning birder or an expert, Davis will help ensure your success in attracting and raising bluebirds. Color photos.
