Bird houses

Building wooden bird houses is a great way to attract a variety of birds to your property, and it can also be a fun weekend project.


Here are a some things to consider when building your own wooden bird houses:


Don't paint, stain, varnish, or treat the inside or around the hole entrance of the bird house, this will keep away the birds. Cedar is a good wood, it doesn't need to be painted, stained or treated.


Avoid using a perch, putting a perch on the will give a predator bird somewhere to sit and wait.


Drill the proper entrance hole for the bird you are trying to attract.


Once you are done building, you will need to find a good place to put the bird house. A good location will be somewhere in your property that does not have to much human activity.


The bird house can be hung on a tree, or mounted to a pole or tree, usually 3 to 10 feet high.
