Bird House Building

Birds are great additions to your backyard. Putting up bird houses is an excellent way to attract them. However, not all birds opt to nest in bird houses. Birds differ in their habitat preferences and only cavity-dwellers are probably interested in the bird shelters in your backyard. As it is, these cavity-dwellers also have their own specifications about the kind of house they like. These are minor measurements or feature issues but they are important for the birds. However, there are general guidelines in building these houses.

    Great article very imformative and good reading birds are very enjoyable to have around the yard and home. When you atract a bird into your bird house it is fun to watch the birds on a Nature Cam and save the video on your computer. The Kids really enjoy it and watch them for hours. http://www.denalibirdhouses.com/BirdHouseSpyCam.asp
