April 13 column

This young Chickadee mugged for the camera in my garden last summer.
Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Bringing in the birds. It's about one of my favorite subjects, which is attracting birds to the garden. If you regularly follow this blog and/or my Facebook page, you know that I'm an avid birdwatcher.

Today's article covers the important needs birds have in order to be drawn to, and remain in, a garden. Birds do so much for our gardens: they eat a bunch of insects, they are great fun to watch, and we get to see them rear their young. It's definitely worth the trouble to make our landscapes appealing to them.

Happy reading!
