Creating a Rest Stop for Birds
One of my little migrants.
I have saved the link below for at least a year, thinking I would write something similar here. But as I re-read Janet Marinelli's excellent argument, all I could think about was the recent research (sources, below) pointing to how important even our farms have become to the very survival of bird and insect species.
So I decided to quit mucking about and point you over to her post at Audubon. It's an excellent resource for building vertical layers within your garden that will support wildlife. Not only is the case for using suburban space for wildlife clearly stated, but specific species to build with are also provided.
