When it comes to your yard, you want to create a place that you and your family can enjoy. Well why not make a place that is welcoming for birds by building them a habitat. By building a habitat that can support one or more feathered family you can do your part to conserve wildlife populations right at home. By doing your part to preserve the natural habitat of the native species of your neighborhood, we can together guarantee that future generations will be able to enjoy them too.
There are four basics principles a habitat needs to support a species:
Food– Consider plants and trees that produce berries and nuts year round, bird seed feeder or suet feeders.
Water– A small pond, bird bath or simply a shallow dish can offer a sufficient supply.
Shelter– Trees and shrubs that can supply a place to escape predators and bad weather.
Place To Raise Young– Buy or build a nesting box or birdhouse.
Birds are beautiful creatures that offer sight, sound and pest control. Every bird produces a different call or song, is full of colorful feathers and many species love to snack on the very pesty bugs that annoy you. So why not enjoy some new feathered friends by supplying them with a safe and comfortable place to stay, while you do your part to help rebuild a species.
