They say March is in like a lion and out like a lamb, and with that means warmer weather for most. Grasses turn green, and trees, shrubs and bulbs start to burst forth pleasing colors, leaving behind the grey winter doldrums!
Color perks up too in the wild birds we see-as the warmer weather brings back many who’ve migrated for winter. Nesting season can be fierce, as competition for suitable nest boxes reaches its peak time. A Wood Birdhouse provides a much needed refuge in your backyard. It doesn’t need to be a plain nest box, as the designs available today are fantastic! As long as the entrances are proportionally correct, and there are clean outs, most wood birdhouses are good to go. The fun designs above are hand carved, and painted with non-toxic paints and finishes, and are crafted from fast growth albesia wood. What a fun way to help birds thrive!
As spring approaches, nesting season begins for many wild birds. The task of finding suitable nest boxes is difficult, as birds far outnumber available birdhouses. Adding attractive, whimsical birdhouses to your yard helps wild birds to thrive in many ways, plus adds life to, and brightens up your environment. Protection from the elements and from predators are two other reasons birds seek bird houses as shelter, they’re not only for nesting purposes.
Today, there are a myriad of fun, and unique birdhouses that will create a touch of whimsy in your yard. Classic architectural styles create a nice statement too. Materials like stained glass and copper, weather proof stoneware, ceramics and wood are available. The choices are endless, with functional art for your yard the birds will truly appreciate. Please help house the birds!
Spring is just around the corner….and it promises that birds who have gone elsewhere for the winter will soon be returning and bringing more color and activity to our backyards. Very soon you can see brilliant Bluebirds, Dazzling acrobatic Hummingbirds, Bright Goldfinches, Orange Orioles, & more in your yard!
Best of all you don’t have to keep just bird feeders full of seed to attract them. Water, nesting material, native plants, fruit, and sugar can be instrumental in attracting these and other colorful spring birds. Don’t forget too, that now is the time to clean out, check, and repair any nest boxes you have.
