Bird Attracting Plants

The best bird attracting plants include native fruit-bearing shrubs and trees and native perennial plants that provide seeds for food. Ornamental grasses are important to a bird-friendly garden, as they provide shelter and nesting material. Native plants are best for birds because they will host caterpillars and other insects to feed their young. Our Regional Native Songbird Gardens combine the best native song-bird plants for each region.
