Eastern Phoebe's Arriving soon, how to put out the welcome mat!

We are waiting for our Eastern Phoebes to arrive. Even though we still have snow here in spots, spring is approaching and the weather will be in the 50's this week. Phoebes are due to arrive any day now. One of the most fun things about this time of year is that it is so full of expectations for us. So many birds will be migrating and arrive in the next 2 months. We have constructed a nesting platform for Phoebes and placed it under our deck, putting out the welcome mat. Phoebe's nest on ledges on buildings, structures, under bridges, on top of porch lights, etc. They are flycatchers and eat lots of insects so are very beneficial to your yard!
