If you are providing food and water you are on the way to creating a perfect neighbourhood for birds. Next, all you need to do is provide them with a home. While they may build their nests in trees and hedgerows (if you're lucky to have some!), it is still a great idea to provide them with bird boxes. There is such excitement around the school when birds move in! Bird boxes range in size and have different entrance holes to attract various types of bird.
