The Perfect Birdhouse What Will You Choose?
March is here, the birds are coming home and it’s time to spring for a new birdhouse to welcome them back home. Birds enhance your garden immeasurably, just sitting outside and listening to them sing will lift your spirits and drag you out of the long winter doldrums. Buy a birdhouse and put it out where birds can use it for nesting or for winter shelter and spring mating. Once you have a successful birdhouse, you can do some science yourself by observing the birds that use it. You can see what kinds of things they use to make the nest, how many eggs they lay and how long it takes them to hatch, what they feed their young, all kinds of things. Of course you have to be careful not to disturb the birds too much or they will leave the nest.
