Attracting Birds with Plants

100 Plants

100 Plants...

A book by Laura Erickson, 100 Plants to Feed the Birds, offers in-depth profiles about planting and care for 100 native plant species that provide food & shelter for birds throughout the year, from winter through breeding and migrating periods. Readers will learn about plants they can add to their gardens such as early-season pussy willow and late-season asters, as well as wild plants like jewelweed and goldenrod. Others, including 29 tree species, may already be present in the landscape and readers will learn how these plants support the birds who feed and nest in them.
