How to Make a Bird Nesting Basket in 5 Easy Steps

Bird Nesting Basket
by Grandma Pearl
This is a great way to protect your baby birds!  Predators like hawks, ravens, owls, crows, and 4-footed wild animals that might otherwise find nestlings or eggs an easy meal will not be approaching so close to a human habitat!

It's also fun to watch from a distance as the birds hatch and are tended to by Mom and Pop.  After about 2 weeks from hatching, the little ones will take their first short flights.  You can continue to see them beg for food from their parents until they learn to fend for themselves.
