Bird expert and author Anne Schmauss provides a brief history of birdhouses and lists the kinds of birds that inhabit them, as well as the types of structures that attract various species. Most important in her selection for this book is the 'wow' factor: These birdhouses are spectacular in their creativity, ingenuity, and sheer originality. With styles ranging from sleek modern to elaborate Victorian, they are as varied as human houses. Illustrating the wide-ranging designs found throughout the world, and even including the birdhouse of filmmaker George Lucas, this book is a captivating look at the creativity than can result when a functional structure is infused with a love of birds."
This book is a delight from beginning to end. You'll see birdhouses that look like they're from a Dr. Suess book, some straight out of a fantasy world, and some that will make you go, "I wish I lived there." Written by Anne Schmauss, the owner of Wild Birds Unlimted, the book gives you details on each birdhouse, as well as birding tips.
