Planting for Birds

Native Plants Attract Caterpillars and Birds

Bird Species @ Collinsville Pollen Trail

(Bird Walk 5/14/20)

Collinsville Pollen Trail is dedicated to planting native trees, shrubs and wildflowers to sustain pollinators, birds and other wildlife. On an early morning bird walk, Jay Kaplan (Director of Roaring Brook Nature Center) sighted 32 bird species in the span of an hour. All but the two migrants could nest in the vicinity. Jay suggested that additional walks would reveal even more species. [ Please see the collapsible Bird Species list on the left ]
