Inspired by Patrick at the Hawk owl nest, I checked out my garden using Live Search Maps' Bird's Eye view. It's interesting looking at your property the way a bird would see it from the sky. Based on this picture I think I need to put some more berry bushes, especially along the right hand side of my property. This will provide both cover and food for the birds. I also need to add some more cover in the 'wilderness' area possibly with a few cedars, some evergreen shrubs etc.
On a side (paranoid) note – I noticed that one of the pictures had what looked like a person on the back lawn. Could that be me? Are ‘they spying on me? I’d love to see what the high res picture look like…… Is that a nude sunbather at the pool next door?? Just kidding!
