Title: How to Build Your Birdhouse
Author:
Description:
Housing Our Feathered Friends!

Endless ideas and easy to follow birdhouse construction plans

If you are someone who loves wild birds how would you like to attract different species to your own back yard? Just like the movie classic, if you build the right house they will come.

It's true. If you create the right environment for a particular bird it's as if you sent out engraved invitations to the right birds. And as any guest, they will welcome your hospitality.

Our environment continues to become degraded with natural habitats for wildlife declining at an alarming rate. Beginning a hobby that leads to helping our feathered friends to flourish is not only personally rewarding but is also environmentally sound.

What you need to know!

First you must know what birds you would like to attract. That entails a bit of research. Fortunately, everything you need to know to develop this hobby is available in "How to Build Your Birdhouse."

Did you know that every species of bird has special preferences about the type of nest or birdhouse that it will use? Tree swallows, wrens, and bluebirds prefer single unit, enclosed birdhouses.

Bluebirds and tree swallows prefer open areas with fewer shrubs and trees while wrens prefer nesting in boxes close to shrubs. Phoebes and robins like a sheltered platform, rather than closed nest boxes.

Anyone can do it!

About the Author

Peter Wodehouse is passionate about birds because of the pleasure they freely give us, and other contributions they make to our well-being and the world around us.

He feels that, if he can do it, then building a few bird-houses and setting them up is not beyond the most ham-fisted tool user. We can all help redress in a small way the damage to birds' habitat that humans are causing at a rapidly increasing rate.

This hobby is one that all members of our family can share, just as they will share the rewards as the variety and number of birds around us increase when they take advantage of the newly available accommodation.

Gardeners will notice another benefit because more birds will mean fewer insects and other problems too. That means a better environment for us all.
