Birds Attracted to Spruce Trees
There's nothing like hearing a chickadee's song in the spring to remind you that warmer weather is on its way. Colorado blue spruce trees not only provide food for wildlife, but they also provide shelter. Songbirds are naturally attracted to these trees - crossbills, black-capped chickadees, nuthatches and siskins. The spruce's bushy, needle structure, provides birds with protection from harsh Canadian winter winds and snow, and they are an excellent place to hide from predators and for nesting. Birds love the strong branches, seeds, and fortress like protection. Not many cats will want to dive into a blue spruce with its needles pointed outward.
