More than 62 million Americans are backyard birders. This publication provides instructions for everything you need to get started—buying and mixing feed, providing water, making a simple suet feeder or building an automatic platform feeder, and warding off squirrels, pigeons, and neighborhood cats. Also lists native plants that will attract birds year-round, as well as species you can expect to see in Alabama summer and winter, from chickadees and towhees to purple finches and ruby-crowned kinglets.
