Creative birdhouse ideas for the garden including garden art ideas and nesting boxes for birds to raise their young.
Not all birdhouses are suitable for birds! Most decorative birdhouses are just decor, and not designed for actual birds to safely nest inside. Each species has unique needs and abilities. If you want nesting birds to stay in your garden, make nesting boxes specific to that species and learn about the best location to hang the box.
