Our Legacy

Birds & Blooms launched as a bimonthly magazine 1995 when we realized that gardeners and birders often share the same interests. It makes sense—if you want to attract birds to your backyard, gardening and landscaping are a great way to do it. And when a garden’s in bloom, adding the movement of colorful birds and their cheery songs makes a backyard come alive.

This concept was so successful that in 2005,  we created Birds & Blooms Extra. The Extra issues are staggered with Birds & Blooms, giving readers a way to receive even more issues of the Birds & Blooms magazine in their mailbox.

We continue to grow every year, from expanding our website to creating exciting new contests. So if there’s something you love about Birds & Blooms that you want more of, or if have an idea you want to share, be sure to let us know!
