Housing for the Birds Illustrations by Mike Del Rizzo Correction: Roof Cleat should be 1½ x 1½ x 4 Each bird species has very specific criteria it judges a potential house against - fail to meet those needs and your avian housing project will remain vacant, or worse, become home to an invasive species such as the starling.
Variables such as the dimensions of the floor area, the size of the entry hole and how far above the floor it is, as well as how high to mount the house are all important considerations when building a house designed to attract a specific species.
Making the entry hole too large will allow predator birds access to the occupants of the house.Do not place a perch under the entry hole - this is little more than pulling up a chair for the predator to rest on while it waits.
To keep the interior of the house healthy, there must be adequate ventilation as well as drainage to allow any water to escape.The house must remain dry to stay warm.Provision must also be made to allow access to the interior for an annual cleaning to prevent the build-up of pests and disease.
