Attracting Birds to Your Garden: 
Which plants do best by birds—offering abundant food, shelter, and nesting 
Stephen Kress, author of The Audubon Guide to Attracting Birds, shows how your 
yard can mimic natural habitats and attract birds year-round. His free 
presentation and slide show, “Attracting Birds to Properties Large and Small,” 
will be held at the Sciencenter at 601 First Street, right off Route 13, on 
Thursday, April 21 at 7 p.m.
Planting the right mix of native fruiting and flowering trees, shrubs, and 
helps keep birds in your neighborhood all season long. Kress describes which 
plants attract birds with sweet fruits in the summer, fatty foods just in time 
for migration, and fruits high in carbohydrates for winter survival. He tests 
these techniques for improving landscapes and gardens on his own property.
Kress will make recommendations for which plants do best in the Northeast, 
showing how to arrange them on your property for maximum benefit to birds. 
also tells how to create backyard water baths and pools and how to encourage 
cavity-nesting birds. And he suggests how to create a hummingbird garden.
Kress will even provide ideas on how you might, someday, place bird-friendly 
plants on a gravesite at Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve. This event is 
made possible by Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve in honor of Earth Day 
and its 5th anniversary year.
Kress is the author of TheAudubon Society Guide To Attracting Birds, The Bird 
Garden, The Audubon Society Birder’s Handbook, Project Puffin, Saving Birds and 
the Golden Guide Birdlife. He will sell and sign books at the even.
