It is a real treat for backyard birders to observe mating and nesting habits of their favorite backyard species. Offering suitable nesting areas will increase the chances that new birds will find your yard attractive.
Add a new bird house designed for a specific species to your yard. Check the size of the entrance hole and the other dimensions of the house to be sure it is suitable for the birds you wish to attract.
Bird House Safety - If you do have bird houses up but they go unused year after year, they may not be appealing to your backyard birds. Be sure they are safe bird houses that are resistant to predators and positioned to be secure from the worst weather.
