Now that winter is almost here, its time to think about our feathered friends in our backyards and give them a roosting box! Roosting boxes are designed to house a large number of birds safely. It provides shelter from the weather and predators. There’s a great box featured that will double as a nesting box in the spring and summer and you can get it at a local bird store (SLD’s favorite store is Backyard Wild in Matthews, NC) or you can build your own with these plans. Before the harshest weather arrives, put up a roosting box….the birds will appreciate it.
In Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” Margaret Atwood
