Leave That Wreath!

Putting up a wreath this year? Leave it up all spring, and you could get birds nesting in it next year. Whether the wreath is real or fake doesn’t seem to matter much to the birds. American Robins, House Finches, Dark-eyed Juncos and Carolina Wrens are among the birds most likely to nest in a front door wreath. If a temporary wreath resident would not be welcome on your front door, be sure to relocate the wreath to a less conspicuous location before spring.
