Ultimate list of 1,400+ bird-safe and toxic plants

Ultimate list of 1,400+ bird-safe and toxic plants

The background for the data used in this table is here.

Some tips on using the table:

  • Always search rather than scroll through the list. The list is very long and there are often differing names for the same plant so it’s just easier to find what you are looking for.
  • Pay attention to the column indicating the type of plant as sometimes one part of a plant might be toxic while other parts may not
  • Search for “Wood” to get toxic and non-toxic wood for perches

NOTE: This information is assembled from other sources and the simple table does not do justice to the depth of research that has taken place. Always click on an item you are curious about to learn the full details.
