Landscaping Basics

To keep birds coming back to your feeders in any season, provide them with these three essential elements:

  1. A variety of quality seeds and other foods.
  2. Fresh water for drinking and bathing.
  3. Ample cover, preferably provided by native plants. Native plants also provide potential nesting sites and a source of natural food.

  1. Village Creek Drying Beds
  2. Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge
  3. Colleyville Nature Center
