If you are reading this, then it’s a pretty good bet that you are already a person who loves birds and nature. And the odds are that your excitement for nature was first awakened by an experience during your childhood.
For many, it was discovering and watching a nesting bird in the yard. There is magic in first seeing an egg hatch, watching a mother tirelessly feeding her young and witnessing brave chicks leaving their nest for the first time. It all makes for powerful impressions on young minds…impressions that will never be forgotten.
March is a great month to make some new impressions by sharing your love of nature with young children while also helping the next generation of birds.
Nest boxes are a great place to start. Properly designed boxes, placed in the appropriate habitat can truly benefit the birds and also provide a focal point for children to learn about nature. They can help install the boxes and then monitor all of the nesting activity throughout the season.
If the birds cooperate and do nest in your yard, then the fun has just begun!
Nothing is more compelling for young or old alike than watching a mother bird feed her young. Whether it’s seeing them in the nest begging mom for mealworms or watching her bring the youngsters to your feeders for the first time…it is sure to instill a sense of wonder and excitement every time.
Visit us soon. We’ll make sure you have all of the proper housing and foods to enable you to inspire the next generation to love nature, while helping the nesting birds in your yard to thrive and survive.
