A few ways to help birds raise their young in your yard or garden!
Keep dead and dying trees in place as nesting spots for chickadees, woodpeckers, and even some owls and ducks that nest in tree cavities.
Hang a nesting box for bluebirds, titmice, and wrens. It must have ventilation and the right size entry and dimensions for the species you’re trying to attract.
Grow plentiful shrubs and trees in your habitat. Some birds prefer to nest in their branches, including American robins and cardinals.
Avoid using pesticides to kill bugs. At least 96 percent of backyard birds rely on insects as the primary food source for their young.
