PIC OF THE WEEK: 05/16/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: One of the most enjoyable parts of spring is the start of a new breeding season for our birds. It brings renewed hope that the struggling populations of birds can once again attempt to replenish their numbers a little. A recent survey estimated that within the last five decades, the total number of birds in the world has diminished by nearly one half! When reflecting back to experiences in my youth and the plentifulness of so many beautiful species, I find this to be true. Many species are now struggling to survive and even exist. It seems a shame as humanity continues to bulldoze its way across every inch of the planet, land and sea. Birds are a sort of temperature gauge to the planet’s health, and she seems to have an illness. So we try to do what we can within our own boundaries. We have plantings of lush greenery and flowers to provide insects and worms a place to thrive. Hedge rows, a small brush pile and understory trees provide perches, shade, nesting sites and shelter from predators. A few high canopy trees are left on our little, suburban, third of an acre lot, providing even more habitat diversity. Plus the addition of a few bird feeders with a variety of offerings and water of course. These efforts tend to pay off as both migratory and local birds utilize the space we have provided. It seems only logical that efforts on a grander scale will reap equal results.
