Many bird species are in trouble because of the loss of habitat in Georgia. Lots of birds come to backyards that offer food, water, and/or nesting materials. We found that the birds especially like the coconut fibre linings used for planters. Here are some photos from our backyard and one (the hawk) from Medlock. Feel free to send or upload your own. See the photos in the embedded slideshow below or on Flickr which includes a video of a chickadee gathering nesting materials.
Spring rains this year have been good and the flowers in Mason Mill Park are plentiful. Mountain Laurel coming soon! Worth a walk along the South Peachtree Creek Trail and, if you can, on to the dirt trails as well. Please take only photos and do not remove any flowers or plants. We want them to grow and multiply in their natural habitat for everyone to enjoy. These photos taken in the last week (April 12-19, 2009) by CHCA board members Tim Bryson and Catherine Larson. See the photos in the slideshow frame below or on Flickr. Please feel free to upload or send along your own.
