We are building an aid for the construction of nests for birds

Vogelnest Nestbauhilfe Natur Kinder

The birds whistle from the roof, or rather from the garden fence: spring is here. And since birds also feel spring, this is the time when pairs of birds meet and build a nest. This usually occurs in the male’s territory, but as life progresses, nest building is a female affair for most songbirds. And so, woman to woman, I thought that we would support females this spring. Together with the children we create an aid for the construction of nests for our birds in the garden. How does it work? See for yourself …


The birds in our garden are fine: in winter we have the birds homemade birdseed served. And in spring we help them build their nests so they don’t have so much work. And since my children are little collectors, they had a lot of fun building a nest. That is why we have in small bowls of materials collected that different species of birds need to build their nests.
