At our house, each morning starts with nature watching. We sit at our breakfast table and look out the window into our backyard which is usually bustling with activity.
This morning, we have watched squirrels digging for hidden nuts, rabbit munching on dandelions, a deer eating it’s way through the underbrush at the edge of the woods, and many different species of birds getting their breakfast or flitting from branch to branch. Wildlife abounds here. We happen to have a great environment that invites animals in. We are blessed to have a yard that nestles up to woods and a small stream.
If your yard is far from the woods, you can still invite wildlife into your backyard. You just need to attract them. The easiest and safest animals to attract to your backyard are birds. With some simple additions, you’ll be viewing wildlife out your window, too.
