birds-epic bug eaters!

   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. 

Fill up their habitat with natives plants

that will attract delicious insects

Birdfeeders help overwintering and nesting birds

in a big way. Eric Griswold, a local wildlife

photographer,  gets close pictures of birds

at his home feeders.

Visit the Tips & Tricks posts for  examples of the

types of feeders he has and who comes to visit.
