Wild Blueberry Identification and Relationship with Birds

Highbush Blueberry is a deciduous shrub ranging from to 6 to 12 feet tall, with a 6 to 12-foot spread. Lowbush Blueberry (also a deciduous shrub) is considerably smaller, ranging from 6 inches to 2 feet tall, with a 2-foot spread. Both species bloom flowers in May (good for insect attraction) and the signature blueberry in mid to late summer. Blueberries are consumed by many birds and are especially a favorite of the Cedar Waxwing. Some breeding birds may use a blueberry shrub for nesting purposes.
