Make Your Garden a Bird Habitat

Make Your Garden a Bird Habitat

My own garden includes a variety of groundcovers — from clovers to sweet woodruff — along with thymes, Roman chamomile and lady's mantle that house bugs for ground-feeding birds such as wrens, towhees and juncos.

Wisteria vines are a haven for chickadees, viburnum shrubs and shelter nuthatches, and you'll always spy plenty of robins hanging out in our grapevines and jostaberry bushes. Surrounding our garden are numerous shrubs and trees — from hawthorns to oaks — that serve as an avian convention hall sure to delight birds and birdlovers alike.
