Wild birds can indeed be encouraged to live in the domestic New Zealand garden. The secret is providing the right kind of water, food and shelter. In this brilliant family reference book by Gordon Ell, you'll find everything you need to know to cultivate a property teeming with wildlife. Filled with practical general advice about luring birds and other creatures close to your home or school windows, you'll also find step-by-step guidelines and illustrations for building simple feeders, lists of suitable food plants and notes on watching birds. Gordon Ell has built up a wealth of knowledge on the subject of attracting birdlife since his first book Encouraging Birds in the New Zealand Garden was published in 1981 (which went on to reprint 11 times). In this new book, which includes beautiful bird and nature photography by Geoff Moon and others, enticing birds into your backyard is made simpler than ever, regardless of the size or style of your garden and how much or how little spare time you have.
