**Episode 7: Building Backyard Bird Habitat** Today’s episode of Backyard Biodiversity is “The Block” for birds, showing you how to transform your garden into a bird paradise. From planting natives to making fruit lollipops and fatty bird pudding, we’ll show you how to get the birds flocking to your garden this winter. **Today's Task** Let us know what the birds are feeding on in your garden at the moment. We’d love to see photos or videos of your bird lollipops, puddings and/or feeders.
