This property attracts an incredible diversity of avian visitors; 44 species sighted in the last 30 days. With native plants and diverse structure, this property is a big hit to passing migratory and resident birds.

To support birds, pollinators, and wildlife to your yards and gardens you need native plants that produce the insects for birds to eat, pollen and nectar sources, and valuable cover options. Insects, like many animals, require specific habitats to reproduce. Along with host plants to lay eggs and provide food for larvae, they need a pesticide free environment and practices that ensure survival. http://app.yardmap.org/map/L2855094 shows how its done! Many great plant selections to explore!
Schools have a vital role to play in creating wildlife habitat. Breck School does an exemplary job. They have three ponds with nesting boxes and observation platforms for students, a new native plant garden, a green roof on one of their buildings and bird feeders. To see what Breck has done, visit: http://app.yardmap.org/map/L3097408 To learn more about school gardens, see our new webpage for information and great links: http://app.yardmap.org/map#!/learn/cultivating-habitat/at-a-school/
No matter where you live, you can have a positive impact on creating habitat for birds. This home in suburban, IL has a plethora of native plants, evergreens to provide shelter, bird baths for access to water and rock/log piles. We are inspired by the YardMappers who are doing everything they can to support wildlife! To see more: http://app.yardmap.org/map/L3268251
Farmers mapping their properties is an inspiration for the YardMap team. This is especially true with farms like this one that is managed for native plants to help support birds and wildlife. Many of the fields are ungrazed and forests along the fields provide an excellent edge-effect for species that live along field/forest boundaries. Lawn is kept to a minimum and shrubbery is permitted to grow separating different open fields.
