Wetland Birds

Wetland Birds

Wetlands provide a variety of food sources including fish, frogs and insects. Taller plants along the edges such as cattails, rushes and sedges stabilize the shoreline from erosion and provide shelter and nesting places for birds such as the red-winged blackbird. Shrubs and young trees attract yellow warblers and willow flycatchers, while tree swallows may be seen zipping through the air in search of flying insects.
