Pruning your hedges? Get it done by the first week of April to protect nesting birds

Rufous hummingbird

Our winter birds, from Anna’s hummingbirds to ravens and raptors, are already nesting! Many birds love to nest in dense hedges, and their homes can be difficult to spot through the foliage they prefer.

To avoid disturbing them, please prune your hedges by the first week in April or wait for August.

The hummingbird nests are next to impossible to see until too late!
