Species of Yard Birds
About Yard Bird Species
All the images and video are of birds in my yard in Topeka, Kansas. The birds come here partly because of the habitat found in my yard. Almost all of the plants are plants native to Kansas. The plants attract butterflies & other insects. The insects attract the birds. Almost all backyard birds raise their young on insects. Without insects we would have few song birds.
