Bird-Friendly Garden Article

Get double duty from your garden with beautiful plants that enhance the landscape and help the birds. Birds are as indispensable to a garden as plants. It's not just the "practical" role they have as bug hunters. Some of them are as brightly colored as the flowers. And even elusive birds you can't see liven things up with their twittering, scolding, singing and a thousand other vocal variations. Birds provide a soundtrack for your garden.

In this article about bird-friendly gardens, you'll learn how to attract birds to your garden and we'll show you 33 bird-attracting flowers, trees, shrubs and vines.

This Bird-Friendly Garden article was originally published in Garden Gate magazine No. 35.

The Bird-Friendly Garden Article is a four-page, 1MB pdf file.

BONUS! A Garden Plan for a bird-friendly flower bed.
