Songbird Mix/ 500 sq ft
Out of stock
Bring ALL the birds to your yard by growing a bird-friendly prairie – a living birdfeeder!
This mix by Prairie Moon is made for Full to Partial Sun and Medium to Medium-Dry Soils. Songbirds and granivores such as finches, doves, many types of buntings, and even quail and wild turkey, will gravitate to the Coneflowers, Sunflowers, native Thistles, and legume family plants like White Wild Indigo, Partridge Pea, and Wild Senna. Hummingbirds will flit to the trumpeting flowers of Columbine, Wild Bergamot, Early Figwort, and Foxglove Beardtongue. Keep your camera ready: birds will drink in the water held near the stem of Cup Plant and perch away from harm in the height of Compass Plants – the perfect photo op! Shrubs, like Elderberry, provide nutritious fall berries birds love. Swallows, swifts, flycatchers, warblers, and martins are insectivorous birds that will feast on the multitude of insects attracted to native plants.
Most important, and often overlooked, is the fact that insects feed on native plants! These insects are vital to sustain the next generation of birds; adults will find the insects needed to feed their young in your native prairie. Several species of prairie grasses and sedges in this seed mix provide seed and building materials; larks, thrushes, and grouse will appreciate the cover for their ground-nesting sites.
All Seed Mixes must be ordered by April 1st.
