Last night we learned about the breeding grounds for birds and why they return after winter. The birds have friends on private lands (like me), to create habitat friendly to the birds. They also have public land management that considers and protects bird habitats. My winter birds have gone heading back up North. Although I am in S. Texas, my place is the breeding grounds for the Northern Cardinals. New cardinals have been arriving all week. They are all busy building cup nests to hold eggs. The males have begun to sing. Tonight we will take a closer look at nests. Enjoy!
