Über diesen Titel
Dick E. Bird's Birdfeeding 101 is everything you always wanted to know about backyard birdfeeding but were afraid to ask. Without overwhelming the reader with details it covers all the bases and answers the most often asked questions.
Included are not only Dick E. Bird's personal experiences but those of thousands of readers who, for almost a decade, have conveyed their stories and experiences through their letters in the monthly issues of the Dick E. Bird News.
Chapters include: The Basics, Fine Tuning Your Feeding Program, Birdfeeding's Little Aggravations, Squirrelly Neighbors, Look Mom, No Cavities (Bird houses) Bird Droppings (Trivia), Seeds of Thought, Recipes and Home Brews.
A baffling mixture of good advice, slapstick poetry, amusing nonsense, interesting facts, puns and rhymes, and writing clearly intended to be silly, this book so often mixes pearls of wisdom and fatuous humor in proximity that many readers may be unable to distinguish one from the other. In any case, Mallery, publisher and founder of the birdfeeding newspaper Dick E. Bird News, presents really useful information in the most diffuse, haphazard way. Much of the text concerns the problems of squirrels at bird feeders: "What is the difference between a squirrel and a terrorist? You can negotiate with a terrorist." In spite of the title, there is a chapter on bird houses. In view of the abundance of straightforward, quality books on bird feeding and attracting wildlife (see "Sowing a Wildlife Garden Resource," LJ 12/96, p. 65-67), this cannot be recommended, unless one is just after the often quite clever humor.?Henry T. Armistead, Free Lib. of Philadelphia
