Birds, Backyard Habitat and Beyond

a film by Craig and Joy Johnson

Puget Sound area watercolor artist and photographer Craig Johnson, and his wife, writer Joy Johnson, have created a remarkable DVD that beautifully illustrates what can happen when native habitat is allowed to flourish, even in as small a space as a suburban backyard. The Johnsons illustrate the delights possible by recording the birds and other creatures that visit their backyard. This engaging film provides a window to wildlife behaviors many people have never seen before. Watch and wonder as creatures forage for food, create nests, raise young, maintain their plumage and much more.

Using Craig’s animations, graphics and photographs, the Johnsons offer some simple suggestions to increase the variety of birds visiting your yard.
