Tips for Birdhouses
When you decide to have or to make a bird house, you will need to take into consideration several tips that can be as important as useful to know.
- It is recommended to construct the birdhouses with the dimensions for the birds which are meant to use it. The entrance hole should be properly sized and the space from the entrance to the floor of the birdhouse should be correct for the type of bird.
- It is better if you do not paint the floor inside the birdhouse and need to be properly constructed with non-toxic material. Wood is very preferable material to help to insulate from hot to cold temperatures. No metal pieces better, since they can heat up too much in summer.
- The inside of the bird house should be easy for you to inspect and clean. A hinged door or removable side is important for observation and proper maintenance.
- It is better not to have a pole near the entrance hole. Most of the birds will not need it, but it can be quite good for the predators.
