    Hi, gang.

    I've fenced in a nice large run for my birds, but it is completely open and clear of trees and bushes. I want to plant a couple of shrubs and trees in the run for my birds.

    I'd like something that would provide good cover against hawks and other raptors, shade for the birds, and, if possible, berries or seeds that the birds could eat.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    hi check in the past couple weeks listings in the coop and run construction section. There has been a thread of this going off and on for about a month. I know that multi - flower roses work and raspberries.
