Impeckable advice for supporting bird populations
It's easy to take birds for granted since we see them all the time. But according to the 2022 U.S. State of Birds Report, the populations of more than half of all bird species in the United States are declining, and 70 species are on the brink of becoming endangered.
Birds are an important part of our ecosystem and gardeners, homeowners and landscapers can do a lot to attract and support them. Adam Janke is a wildlife specialist with Iowa State University Extension. He joins this episode of Garden Variety to discuss how we can support bird populations at different times of the year.
