Year of the Bird--March

I forget that this is the Year of the Bird, the centennial of the most important bird protection legislation ever passed, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. A time to celebrate birds and also to protect them with an eye to their future (and ours).

The Laboratory of Ornithology at Cornell University will post monthly actions. March is the month to make our corners of the world more bird friendly. The March site, Habitat Network provides some ideas and resources to help accomplish this: the local ecoregion in which we live, native plants, native pollinators, local experts, photographs, America as an average American yard,  "and more."

I will try to post the Cornell updates regularly.
