It's almost that time of year when the songbirds will be busy looking for nesting places. It is a good idea to get your birdhouses out within the next two weeks (even though around the northeast it is anything but spring-like).

Before you know it chickadees, finches, wrens, etc. will be actively raising families. It will also be the time of enjoying the many inspirational sounds these songbirds will bestow upon us. I don't know about you, but listening to these birds can give one great pleasure.

Did you know that there are approximately 9,600 species of birds in the world? There are over 5,000 species of perching birds that engage in some type of signing.

So with little preparation, one can enjoy a variety of songbirds by listening to them or watching them raise their young. Just sit back with the thought of spring right around the corner.
