Moss, S (2000) Gardening for birds: how to help birds make the most of your garden. Collins, London. ISBN 9780007123179


Featuring seven garden plan illustrations, this guide covers different types of garden - window ledge, balcony, terrace or roof terrace, small suburban, large suburban and country garden. Each one is supplemented by checklists that suggest the best nest-boxes, feeders and baths to install, and also the best sorts of plants to cultivate. There is also a section on unusual gardens, such as those near the coast. Subsequent chapters look in more detail at caring for birds, providing protection from predators, and identification information. A bird calendar explains season-by-season the different birds you are likely to see in each type of garden, and the correct type of food to provide at different times of the year.
