Attracting Birds, Butterflies, and Other Backyard Wildlife

Written by David Mizejewski


OPL BOOK SUMMARY:  Make your yard wild!  Attracting birds, butterflies, and other local and migratory wildlife is a great way to boost your backyard ecosystem and create more wildlife habitats.

Wildlife is declining at an alarming rate due to a large part of our land development, agricultural practices, pollution, and climate change.  Protecting and restoring wild areas is essential and our backyards can make a difference. Wild areas are too small, so wildlife needs green areas in our towns and cities.  David Mizejewski’s book is a must-have guide to connecting your little place on this planet to support local and migratory wildlife.

Your yard transforms into a living ecosystem for wildlife to feed, build their homes, raise their young, and visit on migratory journeys. Cultivate plants to attract birds and feed wildlife pollinators. Monarch butterflies have been in rapid decline as the caterpillars only feed on milkweed. We need places for these caterpillars to feed and transform into butterflies. Avoid invasive shrubs.  Instead, plant a native wildlife shrub row to create visual beauty and give great hiding places for wildlife. We are creatures of nature too. It brings us joy. Let’s bring nature into our towns and cities. We will sustain wildlife and be happier!
