Choosing The Right Birdhouse

The Sacramento Bee had an article on what birds look for in a birdhouse.  Many bird houses are cute and attractive to humans but may not be functional or of interest to birds.  The article talks about some of the features birds look for such as

  • Safe Location
  • Aged wood that is similar to tree trunks
  • The right-size entry holes critters from reaching inside.
  • A slanted roof for rain runoff
  • Easy accessibility of Nesting materials. 

The story also lists birdhouse resources.  Learn more in the Sacramento Bee:  What birds want in a birdhouse
