Birdscaping Australian Gardens: Using native plants to attract birds to your garden helps you identify the most common Australian garden birds and choose native plants that will attract these birds to your backyard.
From acacias to eucalypts, and from honeyeaters to kookaburras, this essential guide will help transform any garden across Australia into an avian paradise.
Birdscaping Australian Gardens features plant and bird directories and is illustrated with superb colour photographs and line drawings. The book contains comprehensive planting tables and provides expert advice on both plants and birds. It has all you need to create a local refuge for birds so you can help preserve Australia’s amazing natural heritage and biodiversity.
