“Wild Plants for Cage Birds” is a vintage guide to the various species of weeds and windflowers of Britain. Many of these plants contain seeds that can be used as bird food, and this book offers descriptions of these plants together with instructions on how and when to extract the seeds. This volume is not to be missed by bird owners and breeders with an interest in gathering their own birdseed, and it will also be of utility to garners with an interest in plant and weed identification. Contents include: “Common Chickweed”, “Common Dandelion”, “Sow (or Milk) Thistle”, “The Sow Thistle”, “The Spear Plume Thistle”, “The Marsh Plume Thistle”, “Plantain”, “Greater Plantain”, “Ribwort Plantain”, “Eldar”, “Dewberries”, “Charlock”, “Shepherd's Purse”, “Curled Dock”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
