Watch Out for Spring Wreath Nests

Spring has arrived, and for many people it’s the time of year to put out a spring wreath on the front door. But be warned, wreaths can be an attractant for birds looking to build a nest. If you don’t want a bird’s nest clinging to your front door, consider placing your wreath off to the side where it won’t be in motion every time the door opens. As much as we love to have a bird’s-eye-view of nests, it’s easier for everyone if your daily movements aren’t a concern.
