Summary "Discover tested, reliable (and easy) plans for building houses and feeders that attract the most popular backyard birds in North America. DIY birdhouses and feeders are inexpensive and relatively easy to make, even if you don't own a shop's worth of tools or you have very limited carpentry experience. With a few materials and some entry-level skills, you can build cozy homes and an inviting backyard snack bar for all of your favorite feathered friends. In Birdwatcher's Digest Easy Birdhouses & Feeders, 30 original birdhouse and birdfeeder plans are covered by longtime expert Michael Berger, whose trusty mix of birding and handyman knowledge is backed by the reputation of Birdwatcher's Digest magazine. The book includes 16 plans for birdhouses and 14 for feeders and birdbaths. All plans feature friendly, complete illustrations and cutting lists, along with assembly instructions and helpful tips and photos. Recommendations for siting and hanging strategies are included, too.
