Birds are beautiful, fascinating creatures whose songs can delight and inspire, and it’s easy to attract lots of different birds to your landscape.
Plant trees and dense shrubs that can provide nesting areas and shelter from storms or predators.
Provide food for birds by planting species with berries, seeds, and fruits and filling your bird feeders with high quality seed.
Make sure your bird feeders protect the seed from rain, minimize spillage, and are easy to see from the air. And keep them at least fifteen feet away from vegetation to thwart cats and squirrels.
If you can, provide a clean source of water for birds to drink and bathe in.
