The Main Library is the proud home to a family of red-tailed hawks, nesting in one of our tall trees and in clear view. We will begin by looking at the new baby hawks and hearing a bit about the species, then move on to the Gardening for the Birds presentation:
The presentation illustrates the benefits of gardening for the birds in a small backyard. Some of the techniques for developing a backyard wildlife habitat to attract a wide variety of birds are included along with personal photographs of the birds attracted to the garden. The program shows personalized methods for feeding, providing shelter and housing, and incorporating water features into the garden habitat. The goal is to share the enjoyment and benefits resulting from expanding the vision of backyard gardening.
