The other book that has been a big help is "Wild about Birds" by Carrol L. Henderson. I also found that "The Cornell Feeder Watcher's Guide to Bird Feeding" by Jack Griggs and Margaret A. Barker gave me the courage to explore the more creative ideas of home-made bird feeders. It has a section that features folks talking about their Bird Feeding Stations. Some of them were quite eccentric --- really great stuff!
I hope to venture into landscaping for the birds this summer. I'm confident "Projects for the Birder's Garden" will be great for this too, but I will also be looking at Stephen Kress' "The Audubon Society Guide to Attracting Birds: Creating Natural Habitats for Properties Large and Small" for more information on aspects of gardening for birds.
It starts with a section of fast-and-easy projects for beginners to get your feet wet with the easiest of the various types of woodworking, cooking, and gardening projects you can do to attract birds.
Later chapters go into detail on each of the specialties (woodworking, cooking, gardening) so that you can either do it all or just focus on the chapters that address your talents.
The book also includes a Projects-at-a-Glance index so you can look up things to do involving Nesting, Water, Landscaping, et cetera. Highly recommended. Longer review at OrnateBirdGarden-dot-com.
