The Advantge of Native Grasses

Normally at this time of year we would have about 6 Red-browed Finches on our property on the south east slopes of the Mt Lofty Ranges. This year we have at least twelve. I am attributing the increase in numbers to the huge expansion of areas that are now covered in native grasses. 

As well as the Red-browned Finches we also have a pair of Diamond Firetails, perhaps the jewels in our crown given that they're eyeball to eyeball with extinction in the Mt Lofty Ranges. 

I encourage anyone who is establishing a native bird-attracting garden to consider carefully the idea of planting native grasses - indigenous to your garden's location, of course.
