I love waking up in the morning to the sounds of birds chirping.
I always thought that birds just would always be there… there are everywhere, right? Well when I moved and woke up to the sound of silence and not birds I decided that maybe there was more to it then that. Turns out that there are regional plants that will help attract birds:
Finches are frequent visitors at backyard seed feeders, but they also eat a few buds in spring, insects in summer, and berries in fall. And many species of birds that typically gorge on insects switch to a diet rich in berries when migrating in fall. Growing a diversity of food-bearing plants will help ensure an all-you-can-eat bird buffet by providing nourishing nuts, seeds, fruits, berries, buds, and nectar (for hummingbirds and orioles) throughout the year.
Do you have any of these plants by your home?
