Transform Your Back Yard into a Native Bird Cafe
Before you start encouraging native birds into your backyard, it is important to make sure it is a safe place for them to visit. Find out how to keep them safe, which trees to plant to attract birds, which native birds eat what and what not to feed native birds. Activities include fruit strings and a sugar feeder.
