What Does Bird Song Mean? Spring?

Wait! Wait! Don't Clean Up Your Yard!

Sometimes the best thing for the birds and for nature is to leave things as they are in their natural state. Our extensive (and sometimes obsessive) fall cleanup efforts are not only a huge expenditure of energy and time, they also damage and interfere with many natural processes as nature readies itself for winter. So relax, let nature take over your yard, and spend your time watching the birds instead. Read this post to see how doing less can mean more for your birds.
