It's important to note that this book is focused on the Eastern and Central US regions and doesn't contemplate plants native to the West or the Far North. I did find discussion of perennial plants and trees that still could thrive in the Seacoast area of New England, however. This book is a serious examination of native plants and trees benefitting birds and is not a quick read. For the serious birder, however, it is a goldmine. Sorenson will teach you how to map your yard, and then pick plants, trees, and vines that work well seasonally to support your local bird population. She also recommends water features that will provide a source of fresh water for your birds. For anyone who loves birds, this is a useful book. Even if you do not live in the targeted region, there are strategies to be learned here.
I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley.
PLANTING NATIVE TO ATTRACT BIRDS TO YOUR YARD is a truly beautiful book and the first to cover this intriguing topic. Included are ideas for all types of backyards, no matter the size, whether sweeping lawn or container garden. The author recommends plants that support birds all year in 31 Eastern U.S. states, including 76 types of trees, bushes, vines, shrubs, grasses, perennials, and annuals. Stunning color photos of 66 bird species are also featured, making this a must-read for birders, gardeners, and landscapers alike. 5/5
Thanks to Rowman & Littlefield and NetGalley for the review copy. Opinions are fully mine.
