Housing Birds During Winter

SE934 Mounted Grass Roosting Pocket with Roof

Providing roosting spots for birds is important because it allows birds to escape the snow and wind they would face during the cold winter nights.

Birds use these roosting boxes or nesting pockets to huddle together to share body heat and stay warm. This allows the birds to also save energy which is vital for them during these difficult months. Boxes and pockets also keep the birds safe from predators they may incur during the night hours.

Natural materials, such as the ones used in the Songbird Essentials Roosting Pockets help keep birds safe from predators as they blend in with surrounding areas and do not attract unwanted attention.
