Welcome to Garden Birds!

Here, you will find all kinds of useful information that will help you to identify your garden birds and how to make your garden more friendly to birds and to all biodiversity.

Our gardens are a haven for wildlife. Garden birds are among our most familiar and easily observed bird species, are easily attracted to feeders and bird tables, and can be watched from the comfort of our own homes. 

Birds are present in our gardens year-round.  There are many ways in which you can help them, and much of this by simply gardening in a wildlife-friendly manner. You can also provide them with additional food, and of course providing them with nestboxes is a sure way to assist them through the nesting period. Further specific details are provided in the links to the right of this page.

Please also make regular visits to our Garden Bird Blog - this will keep you up-to-date on a seasonal basis on what's happening in Irish gardens.

 If you have a question that is not covered in these links, please don't hesitate to contact us.
