Bringing Nature Home
What do bugs eat? Why native plants, of course. So what's the best way to help birds get the food they need? Plant native plants!
What's the best way to get up to speed on the connection between native plants, bugs, and birds? Where can you go to find out what plants each of your favorite butterflies wants to eat as a caterpillar, or get nectar from as an adult? What's book will totally rock your world no matter what you think about plants or crazy space-alien-looking caterpillars and grub-gut-sucking wasps?
Bringing Nature Home.
Awesome book by Douglas Tallamy, professor and chair of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware.
See my review of this must read at Urban Birdscapes.
