birds-epic bug eaters!
Fill up their habitat with natives plants

We're lucky to have over 120 birds that live in or pass through the Stafford Hamlet.
They range in size from the Great Blue Herons and Bald Eagles to noisy bushtits and glittery hummingbirds
As different as our bird species are, they're all here for the food. As long as we have a habitat supporting nectar and insect diversity, we'll have birds, too.
