This week’s eco challenge is: Leave food out for the birds
Why? - By putting out food for the birds, you are replacing food sources that have been destroyed by development. When homes are built and landscaped, birds lose nesting spots, shelter, and natural food sources, but proper feeding and bird-friendly landscaping can help replace those resources so the birds can come to our gardens and make our environment more biodiverse.
Birds also help to maintain our gardens. They eat weeds and seeds that we may not want, they, along with insects, can pollinate our flowers and they also eat the pest that eat our plants.
