Creating Bird-friendly Communities is about taking personal conservation action to improve the environmental health and habitat quality of our yards and neighborhoods. Together, our actions can have a substantial effect.
Plants for Birds is a program to help you get started in contributing to the welfare of local birds. Our backyards are our private spaces, but also part of a larger landscape we share with our wild neighbors. With the right tools and information, we can do simple things to create a healthier place to live for birds, plants, and other wildlife.
Look into Audubon’s Native Plant database for a list of plants in your area that birds will love.
