Learn to build birdhouses from new Audubon book

One of the best ways to attract desirable birds to your yard is to put up a house.
Margaret A. Barker and Elissa Wolfson teach readers how in "Audubon Birdhouse Book: Building, Placing and Maintaining Great Homes for Great Birds."
The book explains why birds need nesting sites, profiles some notable humans who have taken up the cause of protecting birds and discusses threats, such as predators and pesticides.
The bulk of the book is dedicated to plans and instructions for building birdhouses appropriate for the particular types of birds you want to attract.
"Audubon Birdhouse Book" sells for $24.99 in softcover.
