Garden Affair : Birds attracting plants

It is unfortunate that only after  the rise of Bird flu in our region  people are now realizing importance of Birds in the environment.  Birds have been integral part of our ecological balance and for the Nature  enthusiasts like me they add value to the nature . Birds have always played an important role by awakening mankind with the possibilities of  Nature. 
Birds along with butterflies helps in pollination of plants ,dispersion of seeds and thereby playing important role in recycling nutrients back to the earth. It is a fascinating day for Garden enthusiast to spot a sight of birds . Hereby it is important to note that adding birds attracting plants in your Garden can actually treat with presence of birds.

                       
Here is a glance of plants growing in my Garden that actually attract  Sunbirds and Hummingbirds.


                                                           Milkweed attracts Sunbirds                 



Firebush Plant is favorite for Hummingbirds




                                   Pentas and Ixora attracts many species of birds and butterflies

                                                                              

                                                                      

                                                                               





Lantana is not only favorite among butterflies but attracts Hummingbirds too




                                                              



It is surprising but true Sunbirds are attracted to Fruit bearing flowers like Pomegranate and Guava 


                                                                  Pomegranate Flower
The above list is restricted to the plants present in my Garden and is non exhaustive list of pants attracting birds.

  1. Wonderful blooms!
    Yes, birds are much more important to nature than we think. Some seeds cannot become plants until a bird has eaten and digested the seeds. And i have read that once in china all sparrows were killes because they were considered a "plague". Then they learned that mosquitos and flies (which were previously eaten by the sparrows) are a far greater plague...
    Best wishes and happy weekend, Traude

  3. As always, your garden is filled with beautiful flowers. I have an ixora plant in my garden. I used to have a few lantana plants but when I converted my mini garden to plant more edibles, my friend have adopted a few of my flowering plants.
