Wood is Good!
Some wood birdhouses are anything but boring. Houses constructed of wood make excellent homes for cavity nesting birds, as they are most natural and breathe to allow for air circulation.
Vibrant colors utilizing non-toxic paints and finishes will liven up any landscape, and still provide a proper home for birds to raise their young, as well as, roost on cold winter nights. Wood birdhouses today come in just about every color, style and shape imaginable. Something out there to please all tastes! So, give your birds a new home they’ll use for years, and have some fun with wood birdhouses!
It’s a boat…hanging in a tree! A boat birdhouse that’s actually home to a family of chickadees in my yard. This is a very neat little house that’s seen several years of fledglings, and received many compliments too. Decorative bird houses do so much more than just decorate the yard and look good.
This house is about seven years old, and it’s seen new nests every year. I’m not sure why, but the birds really like this one! With the vast destruction of natural habitat, it’s getting tougher for wild birds to find proper nest sites. Cavity nesting birds face stiff competition for nest boxes, so hanging birdhouses really does help them thrive.
Please help house the birds!
In late spring some folks plant a vegetable garden, while some folks who are into backyard birding help prepare for the nesting season by furnishing wild birds with birdhouses. How about birdhouses fashioned after vegetables?
These unique birdhouses are totally functional, with proportional entrances and easy clean outs, they feature proper drainage as well.
