Bird Habitat Enhancement: Autumn Migrant Songbird Planting

Building on other wildlife habitat enhancement projects at Deer Pond Farm sanctuary, we have dedicated a half-acre area to supporting autumn migrating songbirds. Invasive shrubs will be mechanically removed and replaced with a suite of native shrub species possessing autumn-ripening fruits that have complementary fat, carbohydrate, and energy contents to meet birds’ refueling needs during their autumn migration. In addition, we will expand an existing small patch of Eastern White Pine trees with plantings of Eastern Red Cedars to provide safe overnight cover for roosting birds in all seasons.

The following plants will be installed: nine Arrowwood Viburnums (Viburnum dentatum), six Silky Dogwoods (Swida amomum), six Red-Osier Dogwoods (Swida sericea), six Gray Dogwoods (Swida racemosa), and three Eastern Red Cedars (Juniperus virginiana).

The project site is easily accessible to sanctuary visitors and will serve as a demonstration site for specific habitat enhancement techniques as well as a popular stop for birdwatchers and a point of interest during our guided hikes and nature walk programs. This area will show visitors how they can also enhance their backyard habitats.

This project has been made possible through a Connecticut Ornithological Association grant awarded in 2020.
