I think spring summer is when we see bird nests around here. One of my sisters is about to take all of hers down. She has about three scattered about her yard and every year a bluebird family gets in one of them and she can see a few eggs and then out of the blue a sparrow comes in and throws the eggs out of the house and smashes them. Makes her sick. Can't seem to keep a bluebird family prospering where she lives.
After we visited Zoo America in Hershey Park two weeks ago, they had examples of boxes that could be built for bats and owls and other birds. I think the bat box is neat looking, it has small slits in it and the owl box is really big. I've always wanted to have a bat box because we live near a stream and we see lots of bats all summer long.
Not sure what we're going to do yet.
