Backyard Bird Watching (part 2 of 2)

The plant lay-out or the spacing between trees and shrubs are all important factors when taking into consideration our avian friends.  It is important to consider to provide open spaces that should be well protected from wind and street noise, since these noise does not appeal to birds.

Increasing the number of plants in your backyard, guaranteed more birds will be starting to get cover.  You can even try to create a layered garden to provide richness and diversity in your garden.  You can add layers by planting clusters of shade loving small trees, shrubs and ground covers under taller trees.  They would look a little bit close to the natural woodland.

A good thing about bird watching or keeping bird watching atmosphere in your backyard, is that your garden tends to be an organic garden.  The birds helped in controlling the garden pests and diseases with an arsenal of chemicals, organic gardening balances the ecosystem healthily.

A working knowledge of organic gardening is important to a gardener intent on attracting birds and butterflies.  Using plants native to your region reduces the need for pesticide use since native plants are resistant to local pets and disease.

There is nothing better than watching colourful birds fly around a native and natural garden that almost look like the bird’s natural habitat. This makes sure that birds will be coming back in our backyard.   Bird watching is a pastime many people can enjoy and do without leaving your house or the city.
