Which Trees Attract Wild Birds

Having birds that reside in the trees on your property can give you something exciting to watch throughout your day and can add an aura of excitement and curiosity to your home. You can wake up to the birds chirping at sunrise, and if you’re a bird watcher, you won’t have to leave your home to get some fun in!

Mulberry Trees

These trees produce their own fruit, which reaches maturity during the summer and is a big attraction point for any local birds. In addition to the fruit, this tree also attracts a wide array of insects, which in turn attracts even more birds. This tree provides birds with two of their most important food sources in one place, making this one of the premier trees to plant for bird enthusiasts.

Red Maple 

This type of tree is popular with insects, as its soft bark makes it an ideal ground for them to take up residence. The large insect population, in turn, attracts a lot of birds, particularly ones who are insectivores. Hummingbirds are also attracted to this tree, since the bark is soft, and they can drill into it easier than most other trees. Set up some feeders in combination with this tree and you will soon get some new neighbors.  

American Beech

The American Beech is host to more caterpillars than many of its counterparts. These caterpillars are a huge attraction for a lot of different types of birds, so you’ll be in for a treat. The types of birds seen in the tree change by season, with spring, summer, and fall being particularly popular. This tree is especially suited for nesting, so watch out for baby birds!=
