    Water is an excellent attractor for any type of bird.  No matter the species, or their individual food preferences, water is is must, a necessity for life.  Water can be provided in many ways for birds and other wildlife.  By creating a small pool or pond in your yard, you can offer this life-sustaining element for very little cost–and the impact is big!

    A bird bath placed in a sheltered area is an optimal spot for songbirds, providing a dependable water source.  Birds not only drink water, but must bathe to keep feathers clean and free of parasites, which keeps them in proper working condition.

    Birdbaths are available in a multitude of styles and colors, ranging from hanging to pedestal, and deck-mounted models for a close up viwing experience. Be it glass, ceramics, copper, resin or a stone, a bird bath provides life-sustaining water, and will attract the most species of wild birds.

    Birdhouse Centerpieces?

    Decorative Birdhouse

    Birdhouses seem to come in every size, shape, and theme known to man.  At a lovely garden wedding last spring, the reception was held outdoors and the theme was rustic-but so very elegant.  Not too sure exactly how they pulled this off, managing to incorporate all the decor that was just beautiful.

    A decorative birdhouse adorned each table as the centerpiece. They were rutic looking, but real houses meant for the outdoors.  One person from each table got to take one home.  What a great idea  I thought, instead of throwing away the centerpiece, these could actually be used to house the birds!

    Here’s the best excuse I can find for using a predator proof blue birdhouse.  My neighbor’s cat drives me crazy–seeing her under my feeders makes my blood boil! Here she is on top of my birdhouse!!

    Don’t get me wrong, I love cats , and have five of my own.  Fours stay in, and the ex-feral goes out for 5 minutes in the morning before work and 5 minutes when I get home from work.

    A predator proof blue birdhouse thwarts this kind of nasty behavior as it’s design just doesn’t allow for this kind of dangerous situation.
