No, we don't. We have enough birds chirpping away at 4:30am! LOL! A bird house would just attract more. Plus, I don't want to have to clean the poop and they eat all our grass seed!

We generally don't feed wild animals because we don't want them to become dependant on humans to survive.

This with the exception of the ducks at the local lake. They are already spoiled beyond belief and they don't get enough nutrion esp with babies starting to sprout. We do however try to give actual healthy food rather bread and other human food.

My MIL gave us a bird house and we've never put it out.

We feed the squirrels, though! =)

UM NO. The last bird feeding situation we had they damn near killed us lol. The seagulls at the pier are freaky. Maybe a birdfeeder would be fun in the yard though...

Oh ya the duck pnd is good too. But they apparently are overfed, and they won't take our bread. Ruins the day lol.

We've let our son feed the animals at parks where you can buy the food.  I'll also let him feed the birds.

We do not have a bird house, but I would like to get one in the future.  It would have to be squirrel proof though.  The darn squirrels already eat pinecones from our evergreen and leave some of the pieces on our front steps.  It can be annoying.
