What You Can Do
Birds provide essential services for us, from eating pests to pollinating flowers, and they are a delight to watch and hear. But they face many threats to survival, and many bird populations are in steep decline. With expanding urbanization and development, suitable habitat and resources become increasingly scarce. You can help by gardening for birds and creating a bird-friendly habitat in your yard!
Birds face so many challenges on a daily basis: habitat loss, climate change, predation, building collisions, pesticides, and more. You can help birds by creating a bird-friendly community with these simple guidelines!
