I truly en­joyed the ‘For the Birds’ ar­ti­cle in your June is­sue. Thank you for all the tips. I’ve been es­tab­lish­ing a bird-friendly gar­den for the past year. Apart from all the com­mon vis­i­tors, I also have black-col­lared bar­bets and a long-tailed par­adise why­dah. What makes me proud of these reg­u­lar vis­i­tors is that I live in a suburb in the mid­dle of Pre­to­ria.

I’ve added Mus­covy ducks and what de­light­ful gar­den com­pan­ions they are, pro­vid­ing nat­u­ral pest con­trol and ma­nure for the plants and lawn. I hope many read­ers will join me in cre­at­ing bird-friendly gar­dens.
