We are lucky to live in an area surrounded by spruce trees, birch, choke cherries as well as all kinds of other native plants and dense forest. We have gardens too, both ornamental and some fruits and veggies. Thought there is a wet area nearby, it isn't running water, so a good bird bath with running water is needed. I've also just picked up a nesting box that we'll hang up in the next couple of days, I'm still thinking about where is the best place. Our feeder birds love black sunflower, so I plan to grow some straight from our bird seed around the yard!
