      Bird Food: Native plants provide seeds, insects and caterpillars. Pollinators: A planting of native plants will attract native pollinators such as native bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, and hummingbirds. a family. To attract and benefit wildlife, you need native trees, shrubs, ground cover, vines and wildflowers. Over time native shrubs, trees and plants have been removed on many developed lakeshores. Adding native shrubs can add beauty to your landscape while attracting more watchable wildlife to your property.

      Birds will eat berries and seeds from nonnative plants, but caterpillars are super-finicky, and themselves feed mainly on all-American trees, shrubs and flowers that serve as their nurseries. The birds are more than happy to pluck these crawlers from host plants like red-twig dogwood, blueberries and spicebush.   Maple trees: The birds love the seeds that are within the winged samaras of maple trees. The leaves make maple trees host plants to hundreds of butterflies, as well. They too are usually a welcome sight. Birch trees: The cone-like strobiles are a food source for birds (and other small mammals). Plus, like the maple tree, they are the host plant.

        Plants can reach 5 feet tall. The purple flowers produced in spring through summer attract birds as well as butterflies. Daylily (Hemerocallis) grows statewide with many different cultivars. Plants reach 3 feet in height and have a high salt tolerance, blooming in summer. Flower colors depend on cultivar and attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Plant native plants to help nature. you can support the entire food web by providing food for insects. Insects feed other insects, birds, bats, small mammals, fish and other wildlife. Most insects lack the enzymes necessary to eat nonnative plants, like the ornamental trees and other plants .
