Bird Houses

Bird Houses are designed for birds that normally use natural cavities or create their own in trees for nesting and to raise their young. The most common birds to use houses are bluebirds, swallows, chickadees, tufted titmice, nuthatches, wrens and house sparrows.

The size of the opening can somewhat determine what kind of bird you attract. For instance, a 1" hole will allow only a wren while a 1.5" hole will allow any bird the size of a bluebird or smaller to use it. (The 1.5" hole will deter European Starlings from using the box)

Houses can be attached to trees, fenceposts, poles or hung from branches.

The best time to put up a house is today! Birds actually often choose the house they will use long before nesting season so it's best to put them up and leave them up. It is also a good idea to clean out the house after the young birds have left the nest. If the birds are going to nest again they will build a new nest in no time and it will be much cleaner and healthier to have the new one. Not only that but nest building is part of their bonding and not a chore!

With our clearing of land and cutting down dead and dying trees, putting up a house for the birds around our backyards is something they will greatly appreciate and we have the bonus of watching them go about their daily activities raising a family!

Bluebird Slot Box Style Bird house

This is a bluebird Slot Style Bird House. Bluebirds have some enemies that block the nest hole and attack the female while she is on the nest. With a slot opening she has an escape route! Slot type bird houses are also less desirable to house sparrows which are one of the reasons for the demise of the bluebird!
