Over the course of 35 years nurturing the flora of my back yard, it has become a bird sanctuary.
Tall trees, medium shrubs and ground cover provide safe haven for Black-capped and Chestnut-backed Chickadees, Bushtits, Oregon Junco, Spotted Towhee, Bewick Wren, Song Sparrow,
Anna’s & Rufus Hummingbirds, Northern Flicker, Northern Crow, Steller’s Jay, Downy Woodpecker, Mourning Dove, Red-crested Kinglet and in winter 2019, a Snowy Plover.
Bird baths, a pond and well-stocked feeders attract birds year round.
In summer, at the end of the day, I sit in my leafy bower sanctuary and enjoy the abundance of life around me.
Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate uncharted waters.🐾
