Native Shrubs and Woody Vines of the Southeast,
Landscaping uses and Identification
by Leonard Foote and Samuel B. Jones, Jr
1989. Timber Press, Portland.
This is a classic book full of clear information about native plant use in traditional yards. It is not a field guide at all, but a book full of landscape advice about installing native plants in your yard. On page 38 there is a rather brief chart on which bushes are favored by what native birds. The color pictures are clear, the reader will get a decent view of the leaf, buds, or branching of the shrub or tree.
It is a very useful book to help any gardener new to native plants feel more comfortable with the use of these shrubs in the personal garden space.
