10 Wildflowers That Attract Birds to Your Yard

If you want to attract birds to your yard and also would like to add a splash of color with flowers, might I suggest the best of both worlds?

Below are 10 wildflowers that you can plant in your yard that birds enjoy.  As an added bonus, they are all easy to grow because they are native to the United States. Most attract beautiful butterflies too.
Why Plant Wildflowers?
Wildflowers are native to the United States.  They are easy to grow in most soils. They are beautiful and birds like chickadees, bluebirds, nuthatches, cardinals, blue jays, titmice, orioles and a whole slew of additional birds will visit them during the growing season.

In the spring, the birds enjoy a hearty feast of insects that are pollinating the flowers. Once the seeds start to ripen, the birds collect the seed to eat.

You are planting a beautiful garden to watch flourish and attracting birds as well.  It is the best of both worlds.
