Leave wreaths for nesting birds


This video from North America is called Wreath bird’s nest. Here is what we found in the wreath on our door!

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA:

Leave That Wreath!

Putting up a wreath this year? Leave it up all spring, and you could get birds nesting in it next year. Whether the wreath is real or fake doesn’t seem to matter much to the birds. American Robins, House Finches, Dark-eyed Juncos and Carolina Wrens are among the birds most likely to nest in a front door wreath. If a temporary wreath resident would not be welcome on your front door, be sure to relocate the wreath to a less conspicuous location before spring.

From Wikipedia:

A wreath is an assortment of flowers, leaves, fruits, twigs or various materials that is constructed to resemble a ring.

In English-speaking countries, wreaths are used typically as household ornaments, mainly as Christmas decoration. They are also used in ceremonial events in many cultures around the globe. Wreaths have much history and symbolism associated with them. They are usually made from evergreens and symbolize strength, as evergreens last even throughout the harshest winters. Bay laurel may also be used, and these wreaths are known as laurel wreath.
