IT'S MARCH MADNESS!
Winter is winding down, but Spring has not arrived yet. Your birds will continue to need your help with food sources, water and now the addition this month of NESTING BOXES!
Regardless there are no bugs around yet, nor seeds from vegetation, nor fruit from trees and bushes. The inner clock for the birds is ticking as they begin their nesting season.
Cavity nesters (those birds that prefer to nest in boxes) will begin to look for their site. These birds include the Eastern Bluebird; Woodpeckers; Chickadees; Titmouse; Wrens; and Sparrows to name a few most commonly known and seen in your yard.
Cardinals, Blue Jays, Goldfinches, Hummingbirds; Mourning Doves; Orioles and Robins prefer to build their own nests deeply hidden in trees and large bushes.
The different birds in the cavity nester category require different size homes, and different size holes on the nesting box. A proper nesting box also needs ventilation, drainage, and the ability to be cleaned.
COME IN THIS MONTH AND LET US HELP YOU PICK A FEW NEST BOXES TO PUT AROUND YOUR PROPERTY. REMEMBER: THE 4 REQUIREMENTS OF A "SANCTUARY" FOR THE BIRDS ARE: FOOD, SHELTER, WATER AND NESTING SITES.
