Bird-Friendly Communities

Find the Best Plants for Birds in Your Zip Code

Adding bird-friendly native plants to your yard is as easy as 1-2-3... 4-5!

The Audubon Society has made it simple for you to find the best plants for birds in your area, as well as local resources and links to more information.

All you have to do is enter your zip code and email address!

Your search results will include native plants that have been hand-picked by experts in your area: all will be important bird resources that are easy to grow and available at local nurseries. You can even filter your results by types of plants and bird families you'd like to attract!

Create a curated list based on your preferences, and you'll receive an email listing all the native plants you've selected and the birds they attract. Bring this to your local nursery and you'll be on your way to creating a stunningly beautiful and bird-friendly habitat.

Every individual signup makes a big impact. In North Carolina alone, over 10,000 individuals have already taken inspired action to support our local birds and build strong bird-friendly communities!
