DIVERSITY

by Candi Phillips

Plan Your Yard for Diversity: Have a mix of grass, flower, shrub and tree species that are the same as the natural habitats near where you live. Use native species when possible because birds know these the best, and these are best suited for where you live.

Allow Part of Your Yard to Become a Little Scruffy: Birds need overgrown grass, weeds, brush piles and dead wood. When you realize the benefit to birds and other wildlife, you too can learn to appreciate a little wildness.
