In this garden, native trees, shrubs, and perennials provide the essential ingredients for a successful urban bird habitat: food, water, shelter, and a place to raise young hatchlings.

Over 300 bird species have been identified in the District of Columbia. Some live here all year round, some stay seasonal, and others pass through on their annual migrations to their summer and winter homes.
