Hoo's Visiting You?

As winter loosens its icy grip on the land, a new season of renewal and growth rushes in. Spring! It signals the end of hibernation and coaxes wildlife from their cozy refuge. They don’t waste time waking up, it’s mating season! Out spills the drowsy and hungry hoo’s-hoo of Ontario’s animal kingdom, all looking for love. Let’s make sure they’re looking in all the right places.

As the countryside wakes from its long winter slumber, it’s a great opportunity to catch sight of creatures big and small, feather or furred, as they visit your property in search of a meal and a mate.

Maybe you’ve heard the sleigh bell chorus of Spring Peepers or the mating call of the Barred Owl calling “Who cooks for you?” into the night. Perhaps you’ve gawped at the hilarious dance of the American Woodcock as he busts a move to attract a mate.

There are many ways to increase sightings of wildlife on your property. Install habitat structures to give birds, bats or snakes a safe place to shelter and raise their young, or plant trees to encourage birds and pollinators to visit.

Attend our Caring for Your Land and Water workshop on March 10 to discover other actions you can take to provide safe habitat for wildlife. Do it for love.
