Many people provide birds with food and water during the day, but go one step further. Help birds make it through long, winter nights by providing shelters where they can escape freezing winds and icy temperatures. An inexpensive way to help birds in winter is to put out roosting pockets. Put out as many as you can, so more birds can find shelter in them. You can stuff the insides of these with nesting materials too, such as cotton and grasses. This barn style roosting pocket attaches to trellises, fences or tree branches and is made of all natural materials. Perfectly sized for chickadees, finch, titmice, nuthatches and other small songbirds, it provides excellent shelter during colder weather and a cozy location for backyard birds to nest in the springtime.
