Welcome to my Bird Blog!

Welcome to all my fellow bird lovers and gardeners! I'm so glad you stopped by.

Migratory bird populations have taken a nose dive in the past 40 years. But you can help bring their numbers back by creating beneficial, beautiful and fun habitats in your own backyard. Discover favorite plants and environments that shelter and feed colorful songbirds, as well as how to make them feel welcome by offering their preferred natural foods.

"JENNY" WRENS ARE LIVELY LITTLE BIRDS, that eat many insects in a day.  So they will keep your yard and gardens in good shape.  Providing nesting houses for them will assure they stay in your area.  If you hear a loud repeat of 'tea kettle, tea kettle', you most decidedly have a Carolina Wren patrolling your property!  Leave your dryer lint or hair from your hairbrush out on the ground, and the little wrens will use it for nesting material! I have a wren bird house next to my front door on a shelf, and it is occupied every year.  These diminutive brown birds may be small, but they pack a powerful song that you will welcome!
