Berries, Seeds, Nectar, Insects: Bird-Friendly Gardening

Patterson Park Audubon Center Director, Susie Creamer, is interviewed about Bird-Friendly Gardening on WYPR's On the Record.

How do you create bird-friendly gardens that increase biodiversity and incorporate native plants? What does it take to master the subtle art of bird-watching? We speak to Susie Creamer, Director of Urban Education and Conservation at the Patterson Park Audubon Center, and Claire Wayner, the bird guide for Audubon's Bird Explorers.
