There are many plants that attract birds. Delphinium, monkshood, bee balm, morning glories, roses, sunflowers, lilacs are some flowers that birds like. Berry bushes such as cranberry bush viburnum, nannyberry, honeysuckle, mountain ash, barberries, cotoneaster, hawthorne, snowberries, dogwood and buckthorn offer fruit, some of them into the winter. Evergreen shrubs offer protection and nesting. The key is to provide a variety of conditions; some open lawn, some low growing cover, some larger shrubs and trees and food source. Birds are also attracted to water, such as bird baths. Have fun!
