Urban greenery is vital for birds, from nesting House Finches and hungry Robins to exhausted Neotropical migrants looking for a safe spot to feed and rest after a long night’s flight. City residents can create quality food and water resources, shelter, and nesting sites for birds in small spaces, often at little cost. These green mini-oases contribute to the beauty of neighborhoods, help build community spirit, and provide places for children and adults to observe, study, and enjoy birds. Start planting!
