Make mulch for insect-eating birds

Instead of filling your trash cans with fallen leaves, rake them under your bushes and shrubs to create mulch.  Insect-eating birds as towhees and thrashers love to forage in leaf mulch for the worms and insects that thrive as the leaves decompose.

Happy birding!
