Gardening for wildlife has become a passion and challenge for me with the crazy weather... but there is help available. I met Ron Patterson who is a Wildlife Habitat Naturalist on the Bird Watching forum at the Birds&Blooms website almost 2 years ago and signed up to receive his very informative weekly newsletters. He may live in Michigan and I live in Georgia but his advice will work wherever you live on this beautiful planet!
His latest newsletter's was about Lessons Young Birds Need to Learn....Check this link out and also his home page Gardening for Wildlife . You will find great, solid, information about how to create the right habitat to attract wild birds and cool critters to your yards/gardens. Sign-up for his newsletters so you won't miss out on his gentle way of leading us to make our spaces a safe and friendly haven for birds and wildlife.
Changing the subject a little bit. It appears that the Blue Grosbeaks and Indigo Buntings have left for their wintering grounds. I haven't seen them since I took this picture last week. Hope they have a safe trip. It was cool to see both male birds at the feeder together. I like to think they were giving a joint farewell sighting. They sure have been a pleasure to watch this year!
Peace, Health, Wealth, and LOVE to All!
