The Original Birdhouse Book

Field-tested designs for houses and feeders that birds will actually use!

Don McNeil's 30+ plans for bird houses, bird feeders, and bird baths are sophisticated enough to challenge the avid woodworker, but simple to follow with easy step-by-step instructions. Augmented by Julie Zickefoose's bird illustrations and updated in 2003 by BWD Editor, Bill Thompson, III, this book has sold thousands of copies since its original printing in 1981.

Feather Guard

Help reduce window strikes!

Your customers have certainly heard the sickening thunk of a bird hitting their windows. Feather Guard offers a clever, trouble-free solution to this problem.

Each Feather Guard is 6 feet in length, with 5 colorful feathers (dyed poultry feathers), and attaches to the glass using two small, strong suction cups. It uses color, motion, and the birds' natural aversion to loose feathers to warn birds away from window collisions naturally. Feather Guard easily attaches to the outside of any window in seconds and provides months of protection without cluttering or eliminating the view or light transmission of the window.
