According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, more than 50 million Americans feed birds around their homes. Over the last 60 years, billions of pounds of birdseed have filled millions of feeders in backyards everywhere.

A new book – Feeding Wild Birds in America, by experts Paul J. Baicich, Margaret A. Barker and Carrol L. Henderson explain why and how a modest act of provision has become such a pervasive, popular and often passionate aspect of people’s lives.  To be released in April, pre-orders are available.
