A charming home for birds, this natural, woven grass bird nest is a perfect addition to any edible landscape. (More details) A good time to hang a birdhouse is in the fall or before winter so it can be weathered a bit for new broods raised in the spring. Find a location in your garden that will give protection from the hot sun throughout the spring and especially in the summer. To stay clear of infecting new broods or to keep out various organisms, clean the birdhouse thoroughly in the fall before winter or between broods.
Some of our favorite birds that like nesting homes are wren, chickadee, nuthatch, and the Eastern bluebird. However, for detailed information about other birds that also like birdhouses click here.
