Plants to Attract Birds
Each year your state wildlife agency, private conservation
groups, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, other federal agencies,
and many private landowners and business leaders work
together to conserve and manage millions of acres of
habitat-swamps, forests, ponds and grasslands.
provide nesting habitat for songbirds and shorebirds, ducks and
geese, hawks and owls.
You can make a difference in helping protect habitats for
migratory birds by joining Partners in Flight, a consortium of the
above groups dedicated to finding reasonable ways to maintain
the health of bird populations in the Western Hemisphere.
