Learn how to build a brush pile for birds:
Antelope Island always has a brush pile out back of Fielding Garr Ranch. It's a
regular stop for many birds (and birders), especially during migration. Flycatchers
love to sit on a top branch from which they fly out and snatch insects from the air.
You can often find wrens or any number of small birds hiding in the stack.
Building your own brush pile is easy, especially in the spring when you clean up
the yard and have extra branches that will just end up as mulch at the land fill.
National Audubon will show you how.
If you would like to go with living plants for bird protection, there are many
options. Marilyn and Keith Davis have a huge rabbit brush in their back yard
and the birds love to hang out there; and growing native plants in a dry climate
like St. George is quite easy. Give it a try. The U. S. Fish and Wildlife
Service has a page devoted to landscaping for birds.
