Q.Do Spirea Bushes Scare Off Birds, Squirrels

Zone NO TEXAS | dodger added on April 3, 2012 | Answered

Just planted a 4-gal. white Spirea bush 10 ft. from bird feeders in tree and on ground. The song birds and squirrels are gone. Is the bush at fault? Oak Point, TX (10 mi East of Denton on lake Lewisvilie).

I highly doubt it was the shrub that spooked them. These shrubs are havens for most birds and small wildlife creatures. Give it some time (and make sure the feeders are full) and I am confident they will return.
