Spring migration is a special time in the Great Lakes State. The state is at the intersection of the Atlantic and Mississippi migratory routes.
Michigan is a major migratory route for more than 340 bird species every year and they love a great garden.
Native plants have four times the amount of living insects as non-native plants.
“That’s a big reason why native Michigan plants are an excellent food source for our feathered friends and their hatchlings,” said Erin Rowan, MI Birds program associate. “Growing bird-friendly, native plants will attract and protect the birds you love while making your space beautiful and easy to care for.”
The Michigan Audubon will host a backyard bird habitat workshop on May 11th in Okemos.
