Creating a bird-friendly garden goes beyond just adding a bird feeder or birdbath. It's about designing a habitat that provides food, shelter, and nesting sites for a variety of bird species. Native plants play a crucial role in this, as they are adapted to your local climate and soil conditions, making them a sustainable choice for your garden. They also provide a natural food source for birds, attracting a wider variety of species to your garden.

Why Choose Native Plants?

Native plants offer numerous benefits for both you and the birds. For starters, they require less maintenance and water than exotic species, making them a sustainable and cost-effective choice. But more importantly, they provide a habitat for birds, offering them food, shelter, and nesting sites.

Creating a Bird-Friendly Habitat

When designing your bird-friendly garden, diversity is key. A variety of plants with different heights, bloom times, and food types will attract a wider variety of birds. But don't forget about the importance of providing safe habitats for birds. Dense shrubs, trees with cavities, and nesting boxes provide safe places for birds to nest and escape from predators.
