Bird Attracting Plants

Consider the bird’s needs. Birds need a place to rest, feed, hide, and sing. They like tall trees and low flowers. Their food consists of seeds, berries, and fruit. Keep in mind that many of the trees and shrubs in our landscape are deciduous. You can increase cover and winter shelter by planting more broadleaf evergreens and conifers.
