Bluebirds Forever
Bluebirds Forever, by Connie Toops (Voyageur Press, 1997; $22.95) celebrates these birds in words and photos. It covers the natural history of bluebirds, how their habitat is being threatened, and what people are doing to help. A 16-page pullout includes plans for nesting boxes and resources.

Clever Gardening Technique

Gifts for Birds
Include the birds in your holiday gift-giving. Slather pine cones or bagel halves with peanut butter, then roll them in birdseed. Tie on a piece of twine, and hang the goodies from tree branches.
