A small house with food for squirrels is a great thing to build in fall. In winter squirrels raid bird feeders because they have to eat too. DIY birdhouses and bird feeders are the favorite ideas for outdoors. Let’s add squirrel houses to protect these animals and birds.  The thing is that once the squirrels are gone, the songbirds will be the target of animals up the food chain.

Raptors, fox, and bobcats depend on squirrels and rabbits as a food source. The lack of squirrels across the countryside can explain why hawks and eagles started to hang-out in the cities. If this trend continues, there may come a day when squirrels disappear. If the squirrels go, so will every element of the food chain.

Squirrels give birth in late February and March. The animal needs to eat well to produce her milk to feed her baby and have enough energy to defend her baby from predators. Winter and spring are hungry times for animals and birds. Building small houses will help squirrels and birds to survive the cold seasons.
