Feeding the Birds at Your Table is designed to provide detailed, comprehensive advice and suggestions for people wishing to feed wild birds in Australia from their own backyards and balconies.
Millions of Australians feed wild birds in their gardens. Yet there is currently little information or advice on offer to tell them how to do this properly. This book provides the first readily available source of reliable information relevant to Australia. What’s more, it is written by an expert who feeds birds himself.
Including profiles on different types of Australian urban birds, what to feed them and the types of feeders to use, it also has advice on how to create a bird-friendly garden. Feeding the Birds at Your Table offers sensible and practical suggestions so feeding doesn’t only benefit us, but benefits the birds themselves.
‘At last, a sensible, science-based guide to safely feeding wild birds in Australia.’ — Paul Sullivan, CEO, BirdLife Australia
'This practical and detailed guide to feeding Australian birds from backyards or balconies has been written by a behavioural ecologist from Griffith University in Brisbane, who specialises in the way certain species adapt to urbanisation. Included are profiles of different types of Australian birds that are found in urban areas, with information on what is appropriate to feed them without causing harm, the best feeders to use, and advice on how to create a bird-friendly garden.' — Gardening Australia
