      I found out today that a beautiful, huge shrub that many of our feathered friends call home will be taken down in the spring.  It houses many of the sweet little birds that we have observed being born and have nurtured for the past six years.  It is on a neighbor’s property, so we have no control over it.  I mentioned to my hub that hopefully we can plant some new ones to take it’s place, but of course, it will take lots of time for them to grow.  We consider each and every one of them our pets and will continue to encourage them to thrive here.

        • I’m sorry to hear about that frown How come your neighbor Is taking the shrub down? Maybe you can talk them out of It. I am actually afraid of birds, I won’t get close to them, but I do feed them. I have bird feeders hanging on my trees. I love to watch them from afar..lol, but I hope your birds will find another place they can call home. Or your nieghbor change his mind.

        • Can you not ask your neighbour to carefully remove it and replant it in your garden ?

        • Great idea Vicki. I would also contact any wild bird expert to see if you could obtain any other advice to keep the birds. There should be some advice online. Good luck!

        • Oh, I love Vicki’s idea. I was also thinking that there may be an organization or nursery that has access to more mature shrubs that can be planted in your yard in place of the neighbors‘.

        • You didn’t mention what type of shrub it was. I’m sorry that it’ll be taken down. But we had to remove 12 red-tip bushes, about 6 years ago due to a disease. I know how you feel about the birds. Our neighbors out here in the country clear cut their land and so many trees are now gone. The birds and the squirrels are now coming to my yard for feedings.
          BTW- we planted shrubs to replace the others and we planted tea-olive trees/bushes. I love the smell of them and they remind me of my mommas house/yard. Good luck.

        • that would be awesome if they accepted your idea.

          The root system might be really huge so you might want to call around to have it moved properly.

          It can be done though
