The big book of garden birds
Pinnate Neighbors. Know, appreciate and protect.
Gardens can be amazingly species-rich habitats. This is also and especially true of native bird life. And since one appreciates and protects above all that which one also knows, the ornithologist Uwe Westphal and the nature painter Christopher Schmidt have come together and dedicated an approximately 280-page book to garden birds. Well half of its contents make extensive portraits to more than 50 kinds of bird. Partly only little well-known factual information stands in it equally beside anekdotischen experiences and atmospheric descriptions - which makes the texts both for beginners and for experienced bird observers and garden owners unterhaltsam and instructive. For the adequate visual counterbalance provide the coherent, with an eye for detail executed drawings.
An introductory chapter is devoted to the original habitats of garden birds, which, as a rule, as cultural successors benefit from human garden design - but to a certain extent have also become dependent on it. This is followed by three more practically oriented sections, because of course one can do something oneself to make one's own garden more attractive for the bird world. An important topic is nesting aids, but also bird-friendly garden design. Finally, a look is taken at potential threats - such as cats, window glass and diseases. With all practical explanations the author begins thereby with things, which can be converted immediately, like the offer of Nistkästen or the auxiliary feeding, he goes in addition, on larger measures for the protection of birds.
