Wild Bird Food

The phrase "Wild Bird Food” might bring to mind plastic sacks filled with millet and safflower and sunflower seeds, but the real stuff is actually quite seasonal and scattered throughout the landscape. Here are just a few abundant native sources of nutrition currently available for birds and other wildlife:

Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana)
Small Bayberry (Morella caroliniensis)
Smooth Sumac (Rhus glabra)
Virginia-creeper (Parthenocissus sp.)
Poison-ivy (Toxicodendron radicans)
