Create a Small Bird-Friendly Garden using Indigenous Plants

The best way to create a small bird friendly garden is simply to give the birds what they need… places to feed, nest, rest and breed.  If you design a garden around these requirements, using indigenous food-bearing plants, birds will flock to your garden.

Birds will visit even the smallest gardens, provided that these basic needs are catered for.  In other words, you need to create a great habitat (a place that can provide for all these needs).
