Bringing birds to your backyard with native plants, water

Journal Staff Report

The conservation chairman for the Central New Mexico Audubon Society will give a free talk from 10 to 11:30 a.m. March 16 – a Saturday – on how to attract birds to your yard and keep them safe.

bright spotThe Xeric Garden Club is hosting Bruce Dale’s comprehensive presentation on ways to attract birds by giving them a variety of native plants, water and safe passage, organizers said in a news release.

He also will discuss how native plants have evolved with native birds, creating a symbiotic relationship, providing berries and fruits, seeds, nectar and insects. “So, providing a multi-level habitat with flowers, shrubs, vines and trees attracts a variety of birds and, in return, creates a year-round refuge in your garden for both birds and humans to enjoy,” according to the release.

His talk will be in the Piñon Room at the Albuquerque Garden Center, 10120 Lomas NE.
