Seeing Birds Better in the Winter
As the leaves start to drop and the trees get bare, I get a chance to see all the birds in my garden even better than at other times of the year. While the garden may not look the same, my bird house garden is as lively and joyful as ever. I keep birdhouses in every corner of my property and this is the time of the year that I enjoy birdhouse gardening to its fullest. Wrens, finches, blue jays, and chickadees buzz around my edible birdhouse nibbling and resting in their homes. I love to watch them dart from tree to branch and get extra nourishment from the birdfeeder ornament in my yard. Nothing makes me feel more joyful than knowing I’m keeping an entire community of creatures alive and warm in my backyard birdhouse garden.
