Eric will be presenting a PowerPoint presentation on incorporating native plants into residential landscaping to maximize both the variety and quantity of birds visiting ones’ yard. The presentation will illustrate the stark differences between non-native landscaping versus native plants and the impact this has on wild birds. Examples of excellent landscaping that is wild-life friendly will be illustrated with suggestions on plant species to include in your yard to attract the widest variety of birds.

After a twenty-year career in the grocery industry, Eric decided to combine his love of birds with his retail experience. In 2003 Eric quit his full-time job and started Jay’s Bird Barn in Prescott, Arizona. Eric feels blessed to be able to combine his love of wild birds with his career as owner of Jay’s Bird Barn.
