BirdHouses

Selecting a bird house involves some pre-planning based upon your expectations and setting. When selecting a birdhouse it is important to keep these factors in mind:
  • The type of birds you are trying to attract.
  • 85 species of North American birds are defined as cavity nesters- of these approximately 30 species of birds will use a birdhouse.
  • Once you have selected the species you want to attract, learn about their specific needs.
  • The desired appearance and visible setting for the birdhouse (place away from your birdfeeders).
  • Place opposite wind currents, in a relatively sunny area.
  • Proximity of protective landscaping to the bird house.
  • Ease of cleaning and maintenance.
  • Competition and threat from other animals (cats, squirrels, raccoons, hawks).
  • Pay particular attention to the interior dimensions required by the species you want to attract.
  • Resist the temptation to cluster numerous bird houses together, birds are very territorial.
  • Clean the bird house annually using a 10% bleaching solution.
  • Be patient. Even with the right mixture of habitat, positioning, selection of housing, water, and feed it will take time before your site is adopted by a nesting pair of birds.
