I addition to the plants listed here, I’ve seen the chickadees and scrub jays really enjoying the seeds from the dead lilac blooms. And the hummingbird moths (or something that looks a lot like it) go nuts over my valerian. The bushtits and chickadees help control the aphids on my roses. I also left standing a dead Elderberry that had gotten quite large. The downy has eviscerated it but keeps coming back. I haven’t seen any birds in my ceanothus, but the bees are in love with it.

Thanks for the article!
