Birds in the Garden:
Creating & Enjoying a Bird Oasis
Pam Karlson

Inviting birds into gardens by creating healthy habitat is a joyful way to connect with nature and help support bird populations. Pam’s presentation features her photographs of the Chicago bird garden she created and it’s bird visitors, illustrating how it’s possible to attract over 100 bird species. Tips include landscape enhancements, practices and plant selection, with an emphasis on natives and nativars. Chicagoland’s (and Nashville’s!) importance along the migratory route, bird species diversity, habitat, diet/foraging, nesting, supplemental support and citizen science will also be discussed. Doug Tallamy’s latest book “Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation That Starts in Your Yard,” includes Pam’s city garden, exemplifying the power of urban lots (pp. 190-191).
