Provide shelter with decorative bird houses

Bird houses are an excellent way to attract more avian visitors to your home while accentuating your backyard décor. They also provide those bird species that brave the winter with warmth and shelter at a time of year when both are difficult to come by.

Decorative bird houses are available in a wide range of styles, some of which are suited to particular species. For example, if you live in an area rich with orioles, purple martins or cardinals, you can tailor your wild bird houses to ensure the dimensions and features are suitable for the species in question.

Major Bird House Styles

The most common style among wooden bird houses is the closed bird house. These houses feature wall closures on all sides, a roof and an entrance designed to admit only one bird at a time.
