Want to attract more birds to your property? Build them a nest!

There is a shortage of nesting places for many bird species. If you’d like to attract more birds to your property, a great way to start, is to build them birdhouses that meet their specific nesting requirements.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology website provides a wealth of information on how to build various birdhouses that will encourage birds to make your home their habitat. The site provides detailed information on the specific features required for the birdhouse, as well as how to troubleshoot problems that may arise.

If you build a birdhouse, we’d love to see your photos of the finished product. And let us know if it worked, and you’ve successfully become a bird family’s landlord!

Please note this information is only available in English on their website.
