My garden is becoming an additional room to our house. My home is located in a typical suburban neighborhood within three miles of town center Huntsville, Ala. The backyard is enclosed by a privacy fence bordering an area 40 by 80 feet. Since 2004, when the backyard was certified as a Wildlife Habitat, my gardening efforts have focused on converting the landscape into a habitat guided by the concepts promoted by the National Wildlife Federation. By applying these principals, my backyard habitat attracts birds in all seasons. I have recorded over 90 species to date.
