With his trademark folksy style, Baker, who appears in gardening specials on public television, answers questions and provides tips on backyard birds. E.g., he advises setting aside a portion of a garden for feathered friends, while using reflective "scarecrows" made out of CDs to ensure that the gardener gets their share. The guide includes color-illustrated profiles on plants for attracting birds, and a b&w USDA plant hardiness zone map. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
