Wild Farm Alliance Releases Resource for Managing Wild Birds

Wild Farm Alliance has released Supporting Beneficial Birds and Managing Pest Birds. The PDF publication is available online for free download. This resource discusses the pest-control role of beneficial birds and how they can help farmers reduce pest-control costs when habitat is provided for them. It also explores how to manage and co-exist with pest birds. Co-author Jo Ann Baumgartner explains that “by providing habitat for beneficial birds, farmers are improving the biodiversity of their operations, which increases the resiliency of the farm. This new resource gives farmers practical and research-based information on the importance of specific birds to crops.”
