Similar in layout and content to Roth!s Attracting Birds to Your Backyard (Rodale, 1998), this book is both enjoyable to browse because of its color photos, line art, and call-outs and useful as a home reference because of its alphabetical arrangement. Conveying an enormous amount of information on attracting, feeding, and observing birds, the entries vary in length from half a page to multiple pages for broad or complex topics such as the benefits of fruiting plants (trees, blueberry shrubs, strawberry plants, etc.) as a source of both food and shelter. Despite some overlap with his previous title, Roth presents enough new information, techniques, and anecdotes to make this work fun, worthwhile addition likely to be as popular as similar works by John K. Terres and Mathew Tekulsky. Recommended for public libraries.”Bonnie Poquette, Shorewood P.L., WI
