Garden View : Birdhouse

Welcome to my Weekend and this Saturday post is all about Birdhouse. I have a small collection of ones handmade and ones I bought,

Birdhouses:

What makes a good birdhouse?Birds’ needs are straightforward: food, water and shelter. Bird feeders and birdbaths help provide the first two. Birdhouses cater to a different clientele than backyard feeders. They provide shelter to cavity-nesting species, which for the most part eat insects and berries instead of seed.

Attracting Birds to Birdhouses

  • Food:
  • Water:
  • Shelter
  • Bird-Friendly Landscaping: The best yards will incorporate bird-friendly landscaping that includes not only native plants, but also naturalized areas for birds to feel comfortable. 
One I bought at Strawberry Festival

A friend made this one for me….

This is a great fun project to do with the kids:

  • Empty half gallon milk carton
  • Craft scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Sponge paint brush
  • Paint or stickers
  • Glue gun

Clean out your container and carefully cut out you windows. Decorate how you want and seal the top. Coat with clear Mod Podge . And fill with bird seed and place a holder.

Enjoy your Weekend ! Go out and have fun…. Lisa
