Many bird species begin nesting in springtime and continue on into summer. Some species may lay several clutches of eggs before the cooler fall weather arrives.
You can add variety, color and life to your garden by erecting bird houses to make it bird-friendly. Whether you affix them to the side of your house, hang them from trees or dig a hole for a freestanding pole bird house, just be careful that the placement is good for the birds but not for squirrels, cats or other natural predators.
If bird houses don’t work in your space, add bird feeders and bird baths instead. By offering refreshments, you can enjoy a steady stream of avian visitors!
