Backyard Wildlife: Robins Attack Holly Tree

Robins like to attack my holly tree and feed on the berries. Getting photos of them is hard but there are lots of them flying around all excited (I did manage to catch one of them in the photo on the left). This tree was actually here when I moved in but I also do try to nurture and add plants that feed wildlife. I like just planting things that will feed and shelter birds (and others) rather than filling bird feeders myself. There is information on how to use your backyard to promote wildlife.

    The trees have to be repeatedly cut (tapped) to keep the flow of latex going. The cut must be careful to avoid going too deep and damaging the cambial layer. The cuts must be repeated several times a day to keep the flow going…
