Nothing fills the blue-cool Dallas morning like birdsong. These two weathered houses from Sticks and Stones will attract all manner of sparrows, says owner Mike Thompson. Sparrows are easy; they’ll nest in just about anything with an entry small enough to block larger predators. Mount your birdhouse high off the ground to deter cats and squirrels. Sit back. Listen. — Sticks and Stones Garden Market, 5016 Miller Ave. 214-824-7277.
