Plants for Birds

Let’s grow 1 million bird-friendly plants together

The Audubon Native Plants Database is a helpful and fun-to-use resource that can help you to create a  local area that is friendlier to birds, and to you too. Because the plants are native to your area, they will generally require less upkeep—saving water, time, and money. Just put in your zip code in the search box at the top of this page, and we’ll show you which plants are best for birds in your area.

From urban centers to rural towns, your planting efforts will join those of other bird and nature lovers across the country—together, we can make a difference and plant 1 million native plants for birds!
