Birds add life, colour and sound to a garden and are a joy to watch. They eat many insects, controlling native and introduced pests naturally. Many Australian plants, such as Kangaroo Paws, are bird-pollinated.

Bird-attracting gardensIt is easy to attract birds to the garden with a simple birdbath to provide water for them to drink and bathe in, and by planting native species which provide nectar, seeds, nesting sites and shelter from predators.

The Banksia, Melaleuca, Grevillea and Hakea genera are well known for their bird attracting properties. Calothamnus (netbush) and Lambertia (honeysuckle) species are also popular options for Perth gardens.

For lists of native groundcovers, shrubs and trees that are suitable for your area and will bring birds into your garden, contact the Garden Advisory Service.
