Many of us put seed out to attract backyard birds, but we can bring even more birds to the garden by adding summer fruiting shrubs.

I have 2 other kinds...Pokeweed and juniper (not a shrub, more a tree) berries are used by birds! Every year toward the end of summer, I start seeing pieces of Ashe Juniper twigs including berries scattered on the ground on my place. Not sure if it's the birds that do that or something else, but I know birds do eat the berries!
