Backyard habitat for birds

with Brandon Burger, 
from Backyard Bird Shop

We will be discussing how to provide backyard habitat to support and attract wild birds and other urban wildlife into your yard for enrichment and a enjoyment. Some examples are offering various foods in different styles of feeders, planting native flowers, trees, and shrubs to offer cover and forage, and placing or leaving dead trees and piles of brush. Water features like baths, ponds, or fountains are probably one of the most important, and most overlooked, ways to breath life into your backyard. There are many ways to support wildlife in the backyard, and anyone can do it with a few simple additions or changes, whether you live down town, or have acreage, and can be made to fit any budget.

Brandon Burger is a wildlife enthusiast and lifelong conservationist with a Bachelor of Science in biology, focusing on mammalogy, botany, and ornithology. Over ten years of working at the Backyard Bird Shop has given him the opportunity to share his experience with the public and give educational talks and classes to many local non-profits, gardening clubs, and the county.
