The number of folks deriving pleasure from watching birds in their yards is increasing exponentially, and with it, the desire to know more about these incredible creatures. For example, where do birds sleep at night? How do they deal with extreme cold? Peanuts or suet? However, it is also fair to say that some interactions with birds can pose challenges, for example, how can we stop birds from hitting windows or woodpeckers from damaging our home?
With at least three decades of experience in teaching ornithology, feeding and writing about backyard bird biology, Dr. David M. Bird will provide answers to some of these questions for new and aspiring backyard bird enthusiasts.
