Planting your Aviaries

Oviously, it is important when planning or stocking your aviary to ensure that the plants we are placing in the flights or feeding to our birds are safe for the birds. There are numerous theories on the proper plants to use for specific species of birds. As a general rule, fruit wood is considered safe for all birds, with some exceptions detailed below.

There are many sites on the internet which give lists or recommendations for safe and harmful plants, and I have compiled these two lists from all of them, plus information gleaned from various bird references and my own experience. Where differing sources have disagreed on whether a particular plant(or part of a plant) is harmful or not, I have taken the cautious approach and listed it or the disputed part in the harmful section. We do of course welcome input from birders around the world, so that we can expand this list as time goes on.

It is especially important to ensure that even if a plant is listed here as safe, it is free from all chemical or pesticide residue, as these are definately not good for the birds.
