Welcome <<Name>>
to “Wild Bird Scoop"

Is the following a description of You?

I am happy as a lark, because I am going to wing it and go out on a limb, by saying that You are for the birds, silly as a goose actually and maybe even crazy as a loon!

A bird-brained little birdy told me that you will fly off the handle when you see one of your feathered friends.

You are even known to go cold turkey on all your other activities because you are absolutely a chicken, when it comes to missing a chance to crack out of your shell and fledge to take wing, on adding a new lifer to your list! 

Just wanted to share what I heard about You!

The Seasons are Changing 

The seasons are changing and spring is in full swing for some of us and teasing along for others.

But whatever your experience is with this season swap, you know for sure that the birds are heeding a wild call to head for their breeding grounds and get to work.

Territories must be marked out, mates must be found, or reunited with, and homes must be built before the "littluns" arrive.

But, can we do anything to assist wild birds in accomplishing these intense activities? The answer is unequivocally, yes!

We can also help our birds right in our own outdoor space. Here are some ways to do that:

1.  This spring when you are outside cleaning up, don't be too thorough in getting rid of all those spiders and their webs. As said so well in recently.

"Spiders can be shriek-inducing for some people; however, birds benefit from these eight-legged creatures in many ways including as a food source, using their webs for nesting material, and adding spider eggs to the nest for pest control."

A multifaceted product, but don't tell the spiders!   ;-)

2.  Make it easier for your feathered friends in your neighbourhood by supplying nesting material, bird houses and nesting shelves. Learn more here at Bird Nesting Habits Can be Surprising.

3.  We can do our part in preserving natural habitat on a local level and more broadly by supporting organizations that work tirelessly to this end.
We will continue with ways to support our wild birds during the spring in the next issure of Wild Bird Scoop News.
