It’s time to cut back your faded perennials for the winter
I’ll be out soon cutting some holly, magnolia leaves and other greenery to incorporate into the decorations for Christmas. There are so many things you can use from the garden to bring the outdoors in and create a festive holiday appearance.
Here are a few of the birds we may see year round in Atlanta: Brown Thrasher, Northern Mockingbird, American Robin, Eastern Bluebird, Northern Cardinals, American Goldfinch, Eastern Towhee, American Kestral, and House Wren.
It’s a great time to put a suet feeder out. Suet provides birds with high energy which they need when it gets cold.
Bird of the Month: Northern Cardinal
· Only a few female North American songbirds sing, but the female Northern Cardinal does, and often while sitting on the nest.
· Cardinals attack their own reflection in spring and early summer. Within a few weeks, aggression hormone levels begin to subside and these attacks should end. One female Cardinal kept up this behavior every day or so for six months without stopping.
· The Northern Cardinal is the state bird of seven states.
· The oldest recorded Northern Cardinal was 15 years 9 months old.
· Nearly any bird feeder you put out ought to attract Northern Cardinals, but they particularly seem to use sunflower seeds. Leave undergrowth in your backyard or around the edges, and you may have cardinals nesting on your property
