Need perching place for backyard birds in landscape.
I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this but I thought I would try.
I have a split rail fence around my backyard that is rotting and we either have to replace most of the posts or just get rid of the fence.
I really am in favor of getting rid of it because when we sit on our porch (cement slab) we can't see our pond well that is behind the fence because the rail is in the way and mowing would be easier.
I'm against removing it because I love my backyard birds and they perch on this fence. I've gotten some great shots of Coopers Hawks, Norther Flickers, Tree Swallows, Bluebird fledglings etc on this fence.
I'm considering keeping the corners of the fence only, but do you have any ideas for new perching areas that I could make for my birds? We have 3 trees but don't really want to add anymore because we don't want it to block our view of the pond. I know this is a long shot but thought I would try.
