At our recent event with Rachel and Mike Green from the Darling Range Branch of the WA Naturalists’ Club, local residents learnt how to identify, understand and care for the birds in their garden, street or reserve. They also discussed the conditions and plants needed to attract birds and the secret art of ‘bird shushing’ to bring birds closer.

If you missed the event, or want to learn more about how to attract birds to your garden, you can borrow these books and others from Cockburn Libraries. Click the cover to reserve a copy!
