Open Up to a Bird's Way of Life



Invite birds to raise their families in front of yours!


What makes a good functional nest box?  good ventilation, adeqate drainage, a roof overhang that provides both shade and protection from rain, a panel that opens for easy cleaning and removal of pests, no perches, appropriate dimensions for the species and a box made out of safe materials are all important aspects of a functional bird house.  What birds use a next box in this area?  Chickadees, wrens, nuthatches and house sparrows - depending on where exactly you're located.   Some birds that nest in houses tend to go a little higher in elevation.  Also, downy and hairy woodpeckers and northern flickers as well as screech owls.
