If anyone should know about the finer points of feeding wild birds, it should be Jim Carpenter. After all, as the founder, president & CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, the world’s largest and most successful nature shop franchise, he’s spent quite a few years thinking about the subject.

Therefore news of his having now collected his knowledge of the subject into a forthcoming book to be published by Scott & Nix in the spring of 2017, The Joy of Bird Feeding: The Essential Guide to Attracting and Feeding Our Backyard Birds, will likely be met with great joy by wild bird feeding enthusiasts all across the land.

Having met and chatted with Jim about the subject of birds on many occasions, I look forward to discovering what he has chosen to include in his book and how he presents it.
