"How Birds Help Us Grow Healthy Gardens — and Farms and Orchards and Backyards and Neighborhoods." A retitled, completely reset edition of the 1912 classic Some Ohio Birds by Harry Gossard and Scott Harry. Details the ecological and economic impacts of 91 common species — the insect pests they eat, the good they do farmers and gardeners, how we can help them, and more — and describes their abundance nearly 100 years ago. It should interest both birdwatchers and farmers and gardeners, especially organic ones. The Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station, which Gossard and Harry worked for at the time, published the original version.
