I walked out to the garden tonight and was able to get close to the Yellow Finches that were picking away at the Italian Sunflowers! So beautiful. They are acrobatic hanging upside down and eating sunflowers (their favorite).
Birds are an important part of a healthy garden. They eat insects that are pests and simply need: shelter, cover, water and food. You can add elements to your garden to make sure you have your own bird haven.
