If you’ve been feeding the birds this winter, now is not a great time to stop. Many of their food sources found in the wild will be pretty much depleted, the cold weather is not over yet and there is still plenty of time for additional snow, ice, rain and wind. While they may sometimes take a break from visiting feeders, the birds will return! Soon, many will be scouting out nesting spots and you will love it if they make your garden their home.
Should you want to encourage the birds to nest in your garden, now or soon would be an excellent time to think about adding a nest box / bird house! While some, such as Cardinals, Orioles, build nests in trees, others prefer a cavity - a hole in a tree or a house that you offer. It is always great to have an active nest in your yard….and even greater when the adults bring their young to the feeders! Often birds will seek shelter from the weather in one of these houses….a bonus during the winter season!
