The National Wildlife Federation has tips for you to keep your yard, garden, or balcony bustling all year long by providing a cozy abode for birds. Bluebirds, chickadees, screech owls, some woodpeckers, and other birds nest in tree cavities or birdhouses in spring. Providing shelter is one of the key elements to ensuring your yard is a welcoming space for wildlife.
Here are 4 ideas for luring birds in—and helping them out!
Try a prefabricated box.
Leave nest boxes up all winter.
Winterize your birdhouse.
Protect the box from predators.
You can make your outdoor space as an official Certified Wildlife Habitat site. Check out the National Wildlife Federation website for more information: www.nwf.org
