It’s Time to Help Our Neighborhood Birds

Bird breeding season is here! We recently watched baby birds grow in our backyard flower planter. Bird numbers are rapidly declining and there are several hundred species in desperate need of our help, it’s time to take action. Due to habitat loss, global warming, and the spread of invasive species, the birds really do need our help. The simple act of installing a birdhouse or two on your property is a small way to help protect our feathered friends. A birdhouse will provide shelter for nesting birds, or a bird that is passing through your area looking for a warm place to stay. Make a birdhouse with your children on a sunny Saturday and enjoy knowing that you are helping our feathered friends.

What is your favorite neighborhood bird?

    My favorites birds are many…I love Downy and Red-Bellied woodpeckers, White-Breasted Nuthatches, and Carolina Chickadees to name a few!
