Plant Native Plants & Feed Wildlife for Years.

Fill a bird feeder and feed the birds for a day, plant native plants and feed birds for years.

Not only native plants feed the birds but also the insects, bees, butterflies and ground animals and as well they provide a cover for the wildlife.  Wildlife habitat needs cover to survive, cluster plants creating thickets are good as well as evergreen trees and bushes that provide year round cover.

Depending on the region you live in, rainfall, earth components, climate will all have an effect on your garden and yard. Planting Native Plants can help diversify the seasonal food source and cover for wildlife in your area. As well native plants are easier to take care and need less extra watering, fertilizer and pesticides if at all any.

For here in Connecticut some great native plants that provide berries as food in the fall, winter and spring are Highbush Blueberry, Red Chokeberry, Huckleberry and Sweet Pepper Bush.  Below is a list of Seasonal Food and Cover Sources for the Connecticut Habitat.

 

Connecticut Good Plants

 

Here in Connecticut there are 2,800 plant species, 1,800 of them are native, 1000 are non-native and 96 are invasive and should be removed if found

Peter Picone, Wildlife Biologist with the Connecticut DEEP Wildlife Division has authored an informative book on Connecticut habitat and wildlife ‘Wildlife Is My Passion”.

It is a win win for everyone, you still get the birds visiting but less work constantly filling the bird feeders.

Hi David.  I understand the concept of plants but I love watching them at my bird feeder.

Hi David, there are some residents in our area have butterfly and bird gardens. Other wildlife will stay in the preserved land.
