There are a number of benefits in attracting birds to your home landscape. Birds will help with pest control, flower pollination, and even weed control as some birds consume large quantities of weed seeds that would otherwise grow in your garden. They provide stress relief and endless enjoyment through site and song. You can also feel good about providing them a nice place to visit as more and more of their natural habitats and food sources are threatened by suburban development. Fort Collins Nursery has a large selection of supplies to help attract our feathered friends. You’ll find bird baths, bird feeders, bird houses, bird seed, and more! Don’t forget that planting certain types of fruit trees, shrubs, and flowers will provide them with a sustainable source of fruits, berries, and seeds to feed on throughout the year. By taking a few simple steps and providing them with food, water, and shelter you will be rewarded with an active habitat for birds at your home!
