Millions of Australians feed wild birds in their gardens. Yet there is currently very little information or advice on offer to tell them how to do this properly. This book provides the first readily available source of reliable information relevant to Australia. What’s more, it is written by an expert who feeds birds himself in his own suburban backyard.

Including profiles on different types of Australian urban birds, what to feed them and what types of feeders to use, it also has tips on how to create a bird-friendly garden. Feeding the Birds at Your Table offers sensible and practical suggestions so feeding doesn’t only benefit us, but benefits the birds themselves.

Darryl Jones is a behavioural ecologist working in the fields of urban ecology and wildlife management. He is especially interested in urbanisation and the way certain species are adapting to this process. He has long-term interests in megapodes (mound-builders), corvids, and the implications of garden bird feeding. He is the Deputy Director of the Environmental Futures Research Institute at Griffith University and has published over 170 scientific papers and six books, including The Birds at My Table (2018).
