About Birding Plants

 Need to familiarize yourself with the term birding plants? Birding plants are those that birds can use to build nests and raise their young birds. 

 

 Unfortunately, in many areas of the country, birds have a tough time finding the necessary resources to flourish due to the development of many housing products.

 

 Many people use bird feeders to attract birds, but more is needed.

 Most birds have to worry about becoming prey from animals such as cats and foxes and aerial predators like Hawks.

 

 Birds, believe it or not, do not necessarily nest in trees but prefer to nest in shrubs where there is enough cover. It may be in a tree such as a Crabapple Tree, a Mulberry Tree, or a Virginia Pine Tree, but it can also be in shrubs such as

 Prairie Dropseed Plants, Panigrass Plants, Bushy Bluestem, Blackberry Shrubs, or more.

 

 To birds, the most important thing is to have plenty of shelters to retreat from or to discourage predators, but to homeowners, a prime consideration naturally is the size of their yard and the climate they live in. 

 

 When purchasing birding plants, there is no one size fits all proposition.

 

 So you need to add aesthetics to your mix of things to consider for your hard but to attract birds, you need to provide dense shelter for them, which also has the added benefit of protecting the birds from inclement weather.

 

 Naturally, you'll want to add bird feeders in your yard and provide water for the birds, but by far and away, the most important factor is providing thick, dense shelter.
