The Songbird Garden is designed to improve the natural habitat available to resident and migratory bird species that live at and visit The Gardens. Supplemented by nesting boxes and bird feeders, the Songbird Garden hosts bird-friendly plants that offer food and cover for songbirds year-round. A corner of this garden features brightly-colored perennials to support hummingbirds.
The Songbird Garden is part of the Save the Songbirds initiative that aims to save one million songbirds by creating 50,000 acres of habitat nationwide. This Songbird Garden was made possible with a grant from Scotts Songbird Selections™ and the generous contributions of The Audubon Society of Greater Denver, the Front Range Birding Company, and the Citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
Monthly bird walks, led by Audubon Master Birders from the Front Range Birding Company, are offered throughout the year at Hudson Gardens. Visitors to Hudson Gardens may also borrow binoculars and a bird field guide in the Welcome Center to use while exploring.
