Building A
Bird House

Building a bird house is a great way to start a new hobby.  Offering shelter and protection to a family of birds can be a fascinating project. 

Bird houses can be built from a kit, from plans, or just by nailing a few boards together depending on how fancy or plain a bird house you want.  First you need to know what kind of bird you want to attract.  Specifications are different for the houses of the different species. 

Do you want to attract a blue bird, a wren, a finch, a purple martin or a chickadee?  The sizes of the house, the size and location of the entrance hole,  and the placement of the house are just a few considerations.

Once you decide what type of bird you want to attract, look into the kits and plans or draw up your own plans according to the needs of that particular bird family.

After your house is completed and you are waiting for arrivals, you can put out nesting materials nearby for the birds to use to build their nest.  Just keep the pieces of yarn or string together where they can be easily found.

Birds are loosing their natural habitat by the widespread practice of clean forestry.  In  North America there are about 50 species of birds that will nest in bird houses.  There are many species that actually require our housing to keep the species alive.
