Bird Garden


I subscribe to several newsletters that explain how to make the garden bird- and pollinator-friendly. The information from them and Space for Life prompted me to modify and apply to certify my garden. We are near the Falaise St-Jacques and close to railroad tracks and Meadowbrook Golf Club, so I like to think of my backyard as part of continuous green band that is home or a range for many birds and animals. We started feeding the birds maybe four or five years ago, then realized that the plants in the garden would be the best source of food (and shelter) for them. I want my garden to support the birds and pollinators. I love flowers and try to have as many blooms as possible all season long but find it very difficult because the backyard becomes more shaded every year, and so most flowers don’t thrive.
