Bird Nesting Season
"It's best to observe young birds from a distance and not intervene because birds know best about rearing their babies... Hands-off is the best policy when it comes to birds."
By Andy Wood
It's May and that means bird nesting season. Almost everywhere you look, from bare sandy beaches, to dense shrub and forest habitat, and even on and around our homes and businesses, birds are busying themselves with nest making, egg laying and baby rearing.
