Bringing Birds to your Backyard

Are you looking to attract birds to your yard?  Consider the bird’s needs. Birds need a place to rest, to feed, to hide, and to sing. They like tall trees and low flowers. Their food consists of seeds, berries, and fruits. Since many Portland landscape shrubs are deciduous, adding more evergreens will provide cover and winter shelter.  Following is a comprehensive list of trees, shrubs, annuals, and perennials that will help attract birds.
