Proper planting on your property can make Door and Kewaunee Counties more attractive to wild birds. The Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative, operated by the Department of Natural Resources, finds that many bird species have declined in numbers. That's due in part to changes in their habitat. DNR Section Chief Craig Thompson says property owners can make their yards and acreage more bird friendly by learning which types of plants naturally improve bird feeding.
The Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative was founded about 15-years ago to promote bird-friendly practices.
