|California Towhee Nest|
One of the best ways we can help nesting birds is to keep our cats indoors. It may be unpleasant for cat owners to keep a cat indoors once it's been used to roaming, but it's not impossible. Cats destroy thousands of nests every year. It's a huge problem across the country.
Songbird fledglings hop around on the ground for a few days learning to fly. At this time they are extremely vulnerable to predators, including pets left outdoors. If you have an active nest in your area, please consider keeping dogs inside too.
