Fall Bird-scaping Tips

The fall season is a great time to plant fruiting trees and fruiting shrubs for the fall and spring bird migration. Check out your local nursery and ask for native plants that attract birds. Planting spruce trees will also help birds with giving them shelter during the winter season from wind and snow.

Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory

Here is the link to Hawk Ridge in Duluth, which is approximately 100 miles northeast of Brainerd, a short drive for bird enthusiasts (smiles). Consider visiting to take in the fall colors and the migration. The views are amazing!
