Bring in birds (and butterflies) by the dozen
If you want to bring birds to your garden, just put in a bird bath! Before you know it, you'll have winged visitors adding to the colors and textures of your favorite trees and shrubs. Fresh, clean water can be difficult for birds to find sometimes, so offering them a safe place to drink and bathe can help them out enormously. Bird baths attract all kinds of birds, and if made shallow enough, will also draw in butterflies.
