April 13 column: Attracting birds to the garden
This young Chickadee mugged for the camera in my garden last summer.
Here is a link to my column in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: Bringing in the birds. It’s about one of my favorite subjects, which is attracting birds to the garden. If you regularly follow this blog and/or my Facebook page, you know that I’m an avid birdwatcher.
Today’s article covers the important needs birds have in order to be drawn to, and remain in, a garden. Birds do so much for our gardens: they eat a bunch of insects, they are great fun to watch, and we get to see them rear their young. It’s definitely worth the trouble to make our landscapes appealing to them.
