A Garden for Birds--and Birders

February 11, 2019

The Helen Avalynne Tawes Garden comprises just a few acres tucked within the densely populated center of Annapolis, but it attracts a surprising number and variety of birds.  The landscape, designed to reflect Maryland's distinctive geographic regions, is a mix of natural and cultivated plantings, open areas, and water features that offer shelter, food, and nesting sites for numerous bird species.  Stroll the Garden paths with binoculars in hand, or sit quietly on a bench to look and listen--there's a lot of life around you!
