    Wood Birdhouse Kits for Real Homes

    As nesting season gears up, many cavity-dwelling birds will search for decent diggs to raise their young. But the market is tough for them as well, with the ratio of birds to houses being way upside down, and destruction of habitat at an all-time high. You can provide real homes, or nest boxes utilizing wood birdhouse kits.

    The kits make for great projects with the kids on a rainy day, church groups, or any youth groups. The kit shown here is a quality, eastern pine version of a window nest box. View the nest and babies from within your home. So these wood birdhouse kits don’t stop with the assembly, they’ll still bring enjoyment year after year to both viewers and feathered friends alike!

    Fun Wood Birdhouses with Functionality

    Whimsical wood birdhouses are real homes for cavity-dwelling birds. Complete with cleanouts, the entrances are proportionally sized for nesting songbirds. These wood birdhouses are hand made from sustainable, fast-growth wood. They allow for proper ventilation too.

    Totally fun and functional, wood birdhouses make for excellent and unique gifts for any nature lover. A gift you know will actually be used and appreciated!

    With spring upon us (I can’t wait) it’s time to prepare for nesting season. Clean out old houses and wash with a 10% bleach solution. Allow to dry completely before hanging or mounting. Discard old nest materials away from the house as this may draw predators. Check for leaky seams and apply a bead of wood glue if necessary. Come on spring!

    No Need to Clean Out a Wood Birdhouse Right Now!

    Wish I’d seen this info a bit earlier….

    like before removing the nest from my Bluebird house a few weeks ago! They say it’s called “Spring Cleaning” for a reason, and not wise to clean houses in fall. By leaving nesting materials in a wood birdhouse over cold winter months, it helps to reduce bird parasites by allowing the birds’ own natural defenses against them to develop.

    Woodpeckers and others who do not gather their own nesting materials may be enticed to these nesting sites as well. So, next time you’re ready for spring cleaning…wait until spring!
