Travis Audubon Society Presents: Put out the Welcome Mat for Backyard Birds!

What is a bird looking for, when it decides your yard is a good place for a drop-in visit or long-term stay? Just like humans, birds need food, water, shelter and places to raise young safely, to thrive. Learn how to attract a diversity of backyard species, using native plants, water features, supplemental feeders, and nestboxes. Your yard will come alive with bird song and activity!
