Encourage birds to nest in your backyard by hanging or mounting a birdhouse. Birdhouses are often specially designed to attract a particular species, as many birds prefer different homes. We offer a wide selection of bird houses, decorative bird houses, outdoor bird houses, wooden bird houses, plastic and more.
The most common types of birds attracted with birdhouses are bluebirds, wrens, swallows, robins, chickadees, purple martins, woodpeckers and even owls. Do your research before purchasing a bird home to determine the appropriate house dimensions for your bird of choice. For example, wren and bluebird homes may appear similar, but the average wren home height should be between 6 and 8 inches, while a bluebird house should range from 8 to 12 inches tall.
There are a number of animals in the wild that pose a threat to birds and their young. Cats, squirrels, raccoons, possums, snakes, and even insects pose a threat to nesting birds. To deter predators and other nuisances, consider mounting your birdhouse on an aluminum pole versus a tree trunk or wooden pole. If necessary, invest in a squirrel baffle for added protection.
