Add Water To Your Yard
Not all birds may be interested in the foods you offer, but many more species will take advantage of water.
Opt for native plants whenever possible. Both birds and butterflies will be more familiar with native varieties, and native plants will thrive better on less care.
Eliminate insecticide use. Not only will insecticides kill butterflies, but they also kill other insects that birds will eat. Instead, attract birds to the garden and rely on them for natural pest control.
Dragonflies attack and eat insects. These beneficial creatures can be an asset to the garden, keeping menacing insects such as mosquitoes to a minimum.
