Attracting wild birds into our gardens adds beauty in the way of life, color and song.  Wild birds also offer some of the best organic pest control available. But most birds are really not that interested in the “well pruned” and “non-native” urban landscapes. In this presentation, Scott will discuss what wild birds are looking for before settling down in new avian real estate. Different species exploit different niches and knowing what these differences are will help you create an attractive environment for these remarkable animals. As the saying goes, “build it and they will come”.


Scott Logan is a graphic artist and wildlife photographer with images appearing in books, magazines, and scientific periodicals. Scott is currently the Gottlieb Native Garden’s Naturalist, where he is documenting its wildlife, coordinating University research projects and monitoring the overall health of the garden. He is a collaborator with UC Davis’ Hummingbird Health Conservation Program and is working on his Federal Hummingbird Banding Permit. He is an active wildlife guide, with excursions focusing on bird life. Being born and raised in Los Angeles provided Scott an exceptional insight into its remarkable urban wildlife.
