Clean Slate - Where to start?
I moved into a house a few years ago where the backyard borders a tidal marsh. Many species of fresh and salt water birds nest in the area. I have wanted to plant more bird friendly landscaping back there, but until recently could not since the area did not get enough sun. Mother nature must have liked my intentions because she toppled an enormous Poplar tree in the back corner of my property. What was full shade is now full sun. I'm anxious to put in some bird friendly bushes, plants or trees, but am not sure where to start. Does anyone have any pictures or plans for such a space? We're talking about a 20' by 15' area with salt water nearby. Not too windy. I'm in coastal CT. Lots of migratory geese, robins, cardinals, etc.
