what's new from our FaceBook feed
As the birding gets slower in mid-summer, our attention turns to other colorful flyers: the butterflies! Butterflies, like birds, are indicators of habitat quality and health.
If you want to attract more butterflies, think about choosing native plants that offer flowers with nectar for the adults or leaves to feed and shelter the larval young, i.e. caterpillars. Also consider eliminating the use of harmful pesticides which can kill butterflies and caterpillars.
