Gardening Tips - National Wildlife Federation
This is a great site. It has numerous projects to choose from if you wish to make your garden (or backyard farm) more wildlife friendly, which is one of our missions. Thus far this year we've had Cooper's hawks, skunks, mice, various lizards, Downy woodpeckers, Ladder-backed woodpeckers, Flickers, an occasional Blue grossbeak & Black-headed Grossbeaks & one or two Orioles. Black-chinned and Broad-tailed hummingbirds, Finches, Lesser Goldfinches, American Goldfinches, House Sparrows, Barn swallows, Western Scrub-jays, Greater roadrunners, White-winged doves, Eurasian Collared-doves (unfortunately) and Western Kingbirds. We've had Mountain Chickadees, White-breastsed Nuthatches and Robins, White-Crowned Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos and Pine Siskins. As for butterflies, I've seen, Black swallow-tailed butterflies, Two-tailed swallow-tail butterflies, an Orange Sulfar, a Mounring Cloak and as for moths, I think we've had a Mournful sphinx moth.
