Our yard is teaming with babies. There are three nests right now and at least two of them have babies.
We have two nests on opposite ends of the front porch. Each balanced against a post and the sun screens we hung last year for our really hot July and August sun/heat blocking attempts.
The other nest is in the oasis we built in the back yard. It has the noisiest, ugliest fuzzy headed baby mocking bird in it.
I think this low profile dish we found so I could provide a bird bath has helped. There isn’t a lot of “water” out there for the birds. This dish is sitting right on the ground, is in the shade of the house most of the day so not losing to much to evaporation. Every few days I toss what water is left onto a thirsty plant and fill it back up.
