Sure, our varieties and blends of seeds are hands-down the best options for feeding your backyard birds. No question.
But what is better than offering non-GMO, organic seed with no waste? Native plants, grasses, and flowers.
More and more Nature and especially birds are depending on us for food water and shelter. Habitat creation of native plants and grasses goes a long way toward supporting our birds, being natural foragers and hunters. By creating habitat, we end up living in common with nature which, to me is the end goal, living as one in nature.
Whether or not the bird in question eats insects or not, the fact remains that all birds depend on us and native greenery for their very survival.
With that in mind, the expansion of these types of natural food sources is fantastic not only for our birds but for the insects they eat, many other wildlife species and the air we breathe. Here are five local/native plants and flowers your backyard should be growing this spring after the winter months subside.
