Our yard is a certified wildlife habitat. We feature native plants. Studies have shown that native plants support four times as many insects as non-native plants. Insects are necessary for birds. Some of the more photogenic birds are frutivores. This means that they eat fruit or berries and insects as opposed to seeds. We have shrubs and trees that have berries twelve months out of the year. Every spring, the cedar waxwings migrate through on their way north. During this time, I spend many hours in a blind. This is a cedar waxwing tossing a holly berry into the air.
