When thinking of which bird house is fitting for your local birds, you must do research on your local habitat. Devoting some of your time at the library or on the internet will help you to better understand the unique aspects of your geographic location.
North America alone covers 16.3% of the total land area on earth. The USA by itself can be divided into six climate regions, excluding Alaska and Hawaii, and within our incredible landmass and various weather patterns, there are roughly 1000 species of birds. Choosing the right birdhouse will depend on your knowledge of the bird species you want to attract.
Certain birds in nature will look for enclosed structures to nest and raise their young. Birds that are cavity-nesters are birds that look for a dwelling that is completely enclosed on all sides. An enclosed environment is the only way they will raise their young from fledgling to adulthood. Yet, there are other species that will only seek a partially enclosed structure, or even open platform.
Sparrows, finch, wrens, bluebirds, chickadees are some examples of birds that may choose an enclosed structure to live in. Dove and robins will need a platform with an open view on either one side or more sides before they build their nest and lay eggs. Taking time to make the best decision will result in the best design for promoting bird life in your area.
There's nothing wrong with mounting a birdhouse just for decoration either. Many home owners place small decorative structures in their backyard simply because it looks nice. Yes, there's a process of making a wise decision here too, as choosing the right design will make your backyard look better, especially with your existing garden decor. Your backyard will look better, and the birds that live there will look AND feel better too!
All Wood Birdhouses includes a variety of colors that look good on painted bird houses. Topical finishes don't just include paint, there are several wood stain colors that we use on our products too. There is not much research done that has produced a conclusive list of specific colors that birds are attracted to. However, there is some evidence that has determined that some motherbirds are attracted to bright colors, and the most popular color seems to be red.

These features vary from model to model, and may include a functioning rear viewing door, removable floor plate, pole mount kit, hook and chain set or other.

What is a wooden birdhouse?
Wooden birdhouses are made primarily from solid wood, plywood, or other engineered woods. These types of wood can come in various species, such as pine, cedar, and other exotic woods. A very common wood that is used for any bird structure is cedar wood because it's cheap to buy, breathes well, and is somewhat insect resistant. Wood is easy to sand, easy to paint, and looks great when done.
Wooden birdhouses are a popular choice among hobbyists because it involves a simple construction process and is easy for almost any age to get started. Many wood enthusiasts adorn their bird projects with fancy objects in order to dress it up, since wood is easy to customize. The wood sections such as the walls floor, roof, as well as other wood adornments, can easily be attached with nails, screws, staples or glue. There's no limit to the level of sophistication you desire.
What is a nestbox?
A nestbox is a man-made structure that is intended to provide animals a place to nest in. Nestboxes range in size to accommodate various categories of wildlife. There are many animals that will choose a nestbox to build a nest and raise their young. Man-made nestboxes are largely intended for birds because birds are generally the most skilled nest-builders, even though not all species of birds build nests.
Animals of the avian type are not the only nest-builders in the animal kingdom. Nest-builders are included in all six of the basic animal groups - mammals, amphibians, fish, birds, invertebrates and reptiles. Not all nests look the same, in fact, nests sometimes range vastly in style, shape material and function. Queen wasps build small nests that are dome-shaped structures made from chewed wood, clay or mud. They lay their first batch of eggs in the spring, and when the eggs hatch, the young wasps quickly grow into workers and take over nest building activities.
