Abstract
“Livet på en pinne” is a Swedish expression for having a carefree life, just like a bird. Unfortunately this is not the case in Sweden anymore. Birds aredecreasing in numbers day by day as a result of our actions and most severe is the situation within the intensified agricultural landscape.

This resulted in an artificial biotope that will create habitats for insects. The insects will in turn help the farmers with pollination and pest control on their land and become an important food source for the birds. The biotope will additionally provide the birds with water for them to drink and clean their feathers... (More)
