If it’s a good deed to welcome new neighbors, perhaps it’s a good deed to welcome new flighty, feathered neighbors! Why not add more life and birdsong to your neighborhood (and your own home) by putting up a birdhouse?
For most, birds are a natural source of pleasure. The unique behaviors and vitality, the music, the flashing color, the soaring flight and amazing acrobatics–all provide joy to us earthbound featherless folks. A neighborhood alive with birds is a happier place to live.
Moreover, providing a family of birds with a safe and comfortable home is an act of kindness to our smaller and more fragile fellow creatures. Surely an act done out of kindness is a good deed.
