Enhancing My Backyard Habitat
I’ve added more features to my backyard habitat to making it more inviting to wildlife.
I’m particularly interested in seeing if I’ll get some inhabitants to a Mason bee box I hung on a post in the front of my house:
Hummingbird feeders are up – one in the front yard and one in the back:
I found these bird roost boxes at a market; I’ve placed two in my backyard. I hope to see a little head and beak peeking out one morning:
I cleaned out an old bird nest box. I think I saw an avian visitor checking it out this weekend:
I no longer use bird feeders (that’s a separate topic!) but I provide water in several spots. I get a regular stream of visitors, particularly in the evening:
And I added a new water feature – more for me than the wildlife. It’s so soothing!
I’m excited to see what visitors show up to my little townhome ecosystem this year!
