Modern Birds

Living in the countryside, we love to attract birds. There's nothing like seeing the swallows soar overhead when they return at springtime, or the bright flash of a goldfinch in the tree next to our house. My kids love to watch the birds through the window flitting back and forth from the trees to the feeders.

We've always had a number of feeders surrounding our house, but have just recently begun to mount birdhouses throughout our property. Last year we had 3 pairs of nesting tree swallows and two pairs of house wrens. This year, we'll be trying to get more birds to call our yard home!

Why compromise style when there are so many modern bird houses and feeders out there? Trust me, the birds (or at least your neighbours) will thank you.
