"This excellent guide to bird gardening in the midwestern states provides abundant detail about how to improve the quality of backyard habitats through examples and practical plans. Mariette Nowak demonstrates that even small steps can improve local bird habitats in meaningful ways."--Stephen Kress, vice president of bird conservation, National Audubon Society
"As much a guide to reconnecting people with the natural world as it is to providing habitat for birds. The great detail of information on plant/bird relationships will go a long way to benefiting birds and native plant species, as well as a multitude of other wildlife."--Jim Steffen, ecologist, Chicago Botanical Garden
"One of the most important things bird lovers can do is create bird habitats in their own backyards."--David Allen Sibley, author of The Sibley Guide to Birds
