Cavity nesting birds will thank you!
With this simple element, you can
help support the populations of native bird species, since
development has disturbed natural nesting places.
And birds aren't the only ones who'll benefit.
You'll not only enjoy watching birds nest and produce young,
but boost your garden style at the same time.
A unique birdhouse can add personality and
function as a focal point.
The multitude of styles means
a birdhouse can be found to fit any garden.
From organic like this gourd birdhouse....
to classic lines....
or a bit of whimsy.
Gardening-for-Wildlife.com suggests that
fall or early winter is the best time to
add a new birdhouse since cavity nesters may
begin house hunting by mid-winter.
