This is great information about birds. We are doing our first ever birds focused workshop with Napa County Master Gardeners on June 6 & 11, "Growing for the Birds" this is a talk on gardening with bird needs in mind. Thank you for the information on benefits of birds for insect control.

I thought that it was interesting when you said that a natural predator for birds is parasites. I have been thinking about buying a pet bird but I have been worried that I wouldn't be able to create a comfortable environment for him. I will be sure to try to enliminate all of the parasites in its environment in order to create a happy life for the bird.

Hello. I'm a Master Gardener in Inyo County, and am interested in learning more about birds as pests and beneficials. I am a bird-watcher as well as a gardener, and have a degree in Biology, so I know how to wade through a scientific paper. Would it be possible for the authors to share the original research that inspired this Green Blog article? Thank you.
