Birds of Georgia

With a range of habitats from the open ocean coastal plains to forested mountains, Georgia provides a home to many species of birds. About 100 species of birds breed in Georgia.

Make your Georgia yard beautiful and attractive to our feathered friends. Trees and shrubs that provide food and shelter for birds include Dogwood, Holly, Nandina, Pyracantha, and Viburnums.
