Backyard birding can give us the sights and sounds of nature to appreciate every day, from the comfort of our own homes. In fact, people of all ages, from children to grandparents, can enjoy this hobby!
Attracting birds to your backyard can be as simple as setting up a birdfeeder. And by adding water, shelter, and nesting places, you can create your own bird sanctuary.
Birds that are native to Michigan include brightly colored hummingbirds, robins, and bluebirds, as well as sparrows, mourning doves, and finches. For the top 25 birds native to Michigan, see this excellent website.
To attract each type of bird, you will need specific types of bird food, bird feeders, and bird houses. Many are available online, but for a complete selection visit our stores. If you have questions, you can ask our knowledgeable associates for their recommendations. Then sit back and enjoy!
All Michigan birds love black oil sunflower seeds. But they also like corn, fruit and nuts, seed blends, suet, and nectar. For your convenience, Flowerland offers a great selection of both bulk and bagged bird seed for each species of Michigan bird that might frequent your yard. Read here for tips on feeding birds in our Michigan winters.
Find the right feeder for your space, from hummingbird feeders and nectar to finch feeders or squirrel-resistant feeders. Accessories available too, such as poles, hooks, and brackets.
Bird houses can be just functional, or they can be unique and fun! Your backyard birding can also be part of your garden décor, while providing shelter for our feathered friends.
Birds need water to drink, and a place to cool off on hot summer days. Flowerland offers cast stone birdbaths for garden accent pieces, beautiful glass birdbaths, and more.
