Cats Indoors! Campaign for Safer Birds and Cats

Safeguard your Windows for the Birds!
Up to one billion birds die annually when striking windows simply because they cannot see glass, instead they see reflections of sky and trees. The American Bird Conservancy now offers "BirdTape" as one affordable method to reduce collisions. Applied to the exterior of your windows, BirdTape reflects UV light and makes your windows 'visible' to the birds. To purchase rolls online or for more information, go to www.abcbirdtape.org.

Landscape Plants That Attract Birds

Lepidopteran Use of Native & Alien Ornamental Plants - Dr. Doug Tallamy, whose book Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants, reminds us of the opportunities to put the right plants back in our landscape, plants that will support the insects that support birds and other wildlife. Insects are highly selective in what plants they will eat, and since 96% of birds in North America raise their young on insects, the relationship is clear: no bugs, no birds.
