Let’s say this; things are quite seasonal at the moment!
As we round the corner into the mid-portion of the month of November, temperatures are consistently below the freezing mark, our summer birds are long gone and we already have a number of our winter birds here in the Ottawa area.
With the transition from fall to winter becoming more imminent by the day, we have been fielding a ton of questions from social media and our YouTube channel about how they can best prepare their yard for the winter birding season.
In this week’s installment, we wanted to touch on two main factors that affect our birds this winter; shelter and water. Here are our backyard recommendations for your nesting boxes as well as any birdbaths you might have out in your yard.
