At all times

The Botanical Garden is a prime location for birdwatching because the diversity and quality of trees and shrubs provide the food and protection birds need as well as a suitable habitat for building their nests. Northern species such as chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, cardinals and goldfinches like to visit our feeding stations to stock up on corn, sunflower seeds, millet, niger seed, and suet, while the crabapple trees provide food and shelter for waxwings and grosbeaks.

* Binoculars and a birdwatching guide can be borrowed from the Tree House, open every day from from May 15 to August 1st, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
