Some of you have met our 9 year old daughter, Emily, who has been an avid birder for several years now. In addition to being on a mission to reach 500 life birds by the end of this year (total from the time she started keeping a list, not for this year only), she is also interested (to put it mildly) in making our yard more bird friendly. We have 2 seed feeders, suet, a hummingbird feeder and a bird bath, and she has been busily making drawings and plans to expand this. She is interested in plants/landscaping that would help birds, as well as a running water feature which she says could attract more warblers. She has seen at least one person on Tweeters talk about having a recirculating creek in their yard so she asked if I could post here to find more information on that. I'm thinking the cost would be out of reach, but she would like concrete details to be sure. ;) Any book or website recommendations, or other information you could point her towards would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
