Garden Visitors

With plants that will attract birds,  mulch in the soil to encourage worms, and water for drinks and baths, I always get a good selection of regulars returning each spring to my garden.

It promises to be a dry summer in the BC Interior, so this ‘swimming pool’ might get a lot of use……already, song sparrows, chickadees, robins and towhees show up daily.

And here’s one more spectacular bird that comes around quite often looking for a meal in the surrounding shrubs and trees. Their loud call is unmistakable.

  1. Thanks for sharing your bird pictures. We have the same kinds of birds visiting us. A bird bath would be nice to have too.
