Birdscaping Australian Gardens

Some say that Australian birds are more intelligent, musical and riotous than most.

If so, they have plants to thank for their genius. “Birds and plants have evolved together,” George Adams writes. “Over the millenniums of isolation the relationship formed between Australian flora and fauna is one of remarkable interdependence.” Birdscaping is a comprehensive reference which offers guidance on bird species identification, and on the growing and maintenance of plants to provide food, shelter and nesting for birds.

It contains photographs, drawings, planting tables, a climate zone map, sample garden designs and advice. ‘How to birdscape’, also contains useful information on using ponds and wildflowers to bring birds to your garden. The latter half contains beautifully photographed plant and bird directories.
