Extracts: Gardening with birds – Why birds?
To make a garden with flowers, shrubs and trees is logical, traditional and socially accepted. It is the way of civilized man to manipulate and modify nature to his requirements – pleasure gardening is the most sophisticated manifestation of this. Bird-gardening is an extension of the usual type of gardening to include the most acceptable wild creatures – the birds.
Some adjustments on the part of the gardener is needed and this book sets out to show how this may be achieved with little cost and some effort.
