Whether you want to add some creative, decorative birdhouses to your garden art collection or offer nesting boxes for birds to raise their young, there are plenty of ideas and building plans here to keep you busy.
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.
