WILD Facts: Birds busy with nesting

POSTED: April 20, 2008 5:00 a.m.
Spring has sprung and bird nesting has begun. Species that normally nest in cavities may take up residence in dead trees or birdhouses in your yard. Non-cavity nesters may find your evergreen trees and shrubs particularly attractive for raising young.
While some birds are secretive about where they nest, other species don't mind making their homes close to humans. Wrens often nest amidst garage clutter, house finches may choose hanging flowerpots, and phoebes and barn swallows like to build nests on ledges. Be patient and feel privileged if a bird picks part of your living space for its nest.
WILD Facts is a regular feature written by Linda May, a wildlife interpretive specialist with the Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division.
