For today’s episode, I’m going to quickly review the 10 most popular Backyard Ecology episodes that were published between Thanksgiving 2021 and Thanksgiving 2022.

10) 5 Late Summer Blooming Native Plants I Love: (1:42)
9) Light Pollution and Its Impacts on Birds and Other Wildlife: (2:38)
8) Getting the Community Involved in Creating Pollinator Habitat: (3:56)
7) Grasslands and Grassland Birds of the Eastern U.S.: (4:51)
6) Planting for Pollinators: (6:00)
5*) Ask a Bumble Bee: What Flowers Do Bumble Bees Prefer?: (8:05)

* Note: Numbers 3, 4, and 5 were essentially a 3-way tie. There were only 9 downloads separating numbers 3 and number 5. I listed them in the order that they were on the day that I looked at the stats. But I have no doubt that if I had looked at the numbers on a different day, then they could very easily have been in a different order.

Bonus: A Glimpse into the Fascinating World of Cedar Glades: (14:47)
