Be A Wild Bird Landlord


Many wild birds -- bluebirds, chickadees, wrens, purple martins, titmice, nuthatches -- build their nests in the cavities of trees. Install a bird house in your back yard to attract and help protect these birds, especially if trees in your neighborhood are sparse.

This whimsical short essay in the NY Times, Feathered Friends, Heavy Lifting Required, reminded us that now is the time of year to start planning, as many birds start nesting in early March.


This Birdhouse Comparison Charticon will give you the specs you need for the type of bird you want to attract to your yard. And if you don't know much about bird houses, here's a quick tutorial -- Offer homes to wild birds in needicon -- to get you started on this rewarding hobby.

This non-toxic Bare Ground PawPro Protective Spray for Pets repels water, ice, and snow and protects against salt burns. Safe even if licked!

Prevent Window Hits from Birds -- Window Alert Decals


Have you even noticed a bird flying into your window, sometimes repeatedly? It can be an unsettling experience. It looks like they are trying to fly in the house, but actually, when defending their territory, some highly territorial birds will attack their own reflection in your house windows.


These electrostatic Window Alert Decals prevent window hits from territorial wild birds, like cardinals, sparrows and robins. The decals contain a component that reflects ultraviolet light, which is brilliantly visible to birds, and alerts them to glass without obscuring your view of the outdoors. Use at home, the office, and garage windows.

Available in different designs--Hummingbird, Snowflake, Maple Leaf at Drs Foster & Smith and Amazon.


The Cardinal Alert is a semi-transparent window decal that helps prevent window hits from territorial wild birds that mount their attack from a windowsill perch. Placing Cardinal Alert along the outside, bottom edge of windows eliminates reflections. These decals peel off without leaving a residue.

Amazon and Drs Foster and Smith.
