Breast Cancer Garden Bird HousesBy: Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

There are many benefits to attracting birds to your yard and garden and when you set up a bird house or two and a couple of bird feeders, you will attract some very welcome, feathered visitors. Adding variety to your breast cancer healing garden can make you more energized and positive, giving you more to look forward to. And of course, in terms of variety, birds offer a dizzying array of colors, calls and behaviors.

The Benefits of Bird Houses
  1. Try Bird-Watching For Relaxation You can improve your health, relax, and take your mind off everyday worries by being outside for a few extra minutes a day to watch the birds.
  2. Create A New Learning Experience Watching a bird build a nest in the bird house you just hung in the back yard affords a great deal of learning experience and a great way to get interested in nature and the outdoors. Keeping our minds active and healthy is essential for our overall sense of well-being.
  3. Take Time To Enjoy Nature This is a pleasure that costs so little and gives so much satisfaction. There are some bird houses that fit a tight budget and others that are more elegant. Some of the bird feeders are less costly than others.
  4. Lift Your Spirits It’s possible to do a lot of birding just by looking out the window, sooner or later birds will lure us outdoors. While this alone can lift your spirits, there really is a scientific tie between your mood and being outside. When we’re outdoors moving around and breathing fresh air, we tend to take deeper breaths. With more oxygen transported to all the cells of our bodies, including our brains, we become more alert, and our mood is likely to be elevated.
  5. Attracting Birds For Flower Pollination  There are many birds who love to sip nectar from flowers and help to pollinate. With the bee population diminishing, attracting birds who do this is sure to benefit your garden.
  6. Learn How To Practice Conservation Birds love native plants.  If you grow these and then attract birds to your yard with bird friendly birdhouses, you will find that your gardening chores will diminish.
  7. Enjoy Bird Songs Well for one, there are some very beautiful bird songs that can delight your ear, not to mention some very colorful birds to please the eye.
  8. Eliminate Need For Toxic Insecticides Another benefit is that birds will eat harmful insects that plague your garden and yard. Inviting birds into your yard by setting up a bird house eliminates the need for toxic insecticides and give you a healthier life style.
Choosing The Right Bird House

Choosing the right bird house is a matter of personal taste. If you attract them to your yard by having bird friendly bird houses, and adding fresh clean water to the yard, they will visit often and bring many benefits to your yard.

A bird house can easily fit your outdoor garden theme. If you don’t want to buy a bird house, then get out your DIY supplies. You don’t have to think small! Try a large bird house will be the focal point of any garden!
