Houston, Texas
We can show you how to turn your yard into a birdfeeding habitat that brings song, color and life to your home.

Springtime in Houston is an exciting time to watch birds!  We are in one of the top destinations for birders to watch the amazing phenomenon of spring migration.  Literally millions of birds leave their wintering grounds in Central and South America and fly to the Upper Texas Coast - non-stop across the Gulf of Mexico!  Warblers, tanagers, grosbeaks, hummingbirds, vireos, buntings and more make their way north through the Houston area to their breeding grounds further north.  Having a birdbath with moving water is the best way to attract many migrants out of the treetops into your yard where you can see them.  The Houston Audubon Society has many sanctuaries throughout the Houston/Galveston area where you can watch these migrants as they come through.  So grab your binoculars and field guide and see what migrants you can find!  Come in and tell us what you're seeing!

Spring is exciting for another reason.  If you haven't noticed, there is a lot of music in the air.  Birds are establishing territories for nesting and some have already begun the process of nesting.  Watch for cardinals building their nest in thick shrubs in your backyard.  Carolina Wrens will nest almost anywhere.  Purple Martins will return to their colonies.  Provide some high-energy foods with calcium for the birds during this time. 

We look forward to visiting with you in the store!  We want to help you make your backyard a sanctuary for you and the birds.  We'll see you soon!
