Do you try to attract birds and butterflies to your garden?

Are there features like a fountain or pond in your yard? Native flowers? Butterfly host plants?

I live near open space so I’m thrilled to have both birds and butterflies in my yard and am always looking for ways to attract more species.

    Havent gone out of my way for butterflies but I have several birdfeeders that attract goldfinches, chicadees, cowbirds, bluejays, sparrows, cardinals, downy woodpeckers, mourning doves…lots of others. Love them birdies!

    Well I’ve been putting up hummingbird feeders for years and they come back my garden every single year. They’re beautiful.

    Just recently I hung several bird feeders and have gotten all sorts of pretty birds visiting my garden.

    a bird feeder for the birds, and a butterfly bush that comes back every year to attract the hummingbirds and butterflies!

    We have gone feeder crazy — we have 14. We fill a couple feeders with black oil sunflower seeds, a couple with thistle, and several with a mixed seed. We also have suet feeders, a hummingbird feeder, and squirrel feeders. There’s 2 bird houses too. We have a hanging bird bath and a container fountain along with a mix of colorful blooming flowers. We get a variety of species — there’s nothing more rewarding than spotting a new bird.

    I’d recommend starting small — and offering just a feeder or water source. Flowers and trees are also certain to draw in the birds and butterflies. It did take a couple of seasons for our feeders to draw in all the species we have now. When we started we mainly had sparrows.
