The variety of birds attracted to our urban gardens seems to be decreasing but there are some simple changes you can make to your garden to make it a more inviting habitat to visit.

In this talk Richard will discuss how to change your garden and invite birds to take up residence once again. He will cover the fundamentals of a habitat garden incorporating the important habitat elements of food, water, shelter and nesting places.

This class will cover:

  • Why some birds are becoming rare and others are thriving
  • Habitat elements to include in your garden
  • Indigenous plants to consider 
  • Bully and pest birds – some strategies to try
  • Pets – their impact on native fauna and simple strategies to manage them
