While it wasn’t the first thing I did today, I am fulfilling my promise to keep posting. Today really is the first day back for the New Year and so far so good. The feeders were very busy this morning, with tons of Chickadees and a few others at the feeders. Also have a very loyal Hairy Woodpecker that visits the suet feeder every day.
Today at the store we pretty much just started looking at how we might want to rearrange the store and John re-did our front window to focus on winter roosting products. As we are sure to go back into the freezer at some point, it’s important to remember that we need to provide wild birds with some places to go when it’s brutally cold out. Roosting boxes are built just for that purpose.
If you haven’t seen a roosting box, it looks somewhat like a bluebird house, except that the hole is at the bottom of the box and there are perches built inside for the birds to use. There’s no ventilation slits at the top of the box so any heat the birds generate, helps keep all the birds warmer.
They’re a great addition to any backyard habitat, so if you have any questions or would like to get one… just give us a call or send a note to the shop!
