“I get a lot of various species of bird in my garden and after spending years watching them, and their mannerisms, I treated myself to this book. I have read it a few times, and now read each months section as we go into a new month. It has helped me understand the mannerisms of the birds and their reasoning for doing what they do. It’s certainly given me a better understanding of the birds and what to look for, and has helped me to attract more birds into the garden. A pleasure to read and extremely informative.” ‘Firebear62’, Amazon customer
