You can design a nature-focused garden that helps create patches of habitat that are beneficial to birds – year-round residents, winter visitors, local breeding birds, and also those that are passing through during spring and fall migrations. When you garden with birds in mind, your property can become part of a larger conservation initiative to help address the loss of biological diversity (biodiversity). And you might be surprised by how many new species you’ll see visiting your property or living in your garden!

Think about the resources that we all need to survive: food, water, and shelter. By incorporating these three crucial aspects into the design for your outdoor space in a variety of ways, you will be helping to provide a habitat for a suite of wildlife – not just birds! Your garden may also become a home for butterflies, bees, other important pollinators, and wildlife such as toads or salamanders. Just like birds, many species may be struggling with disappearing habitats, and you can help protect them too.
