NEST AND REST BIRDHOUSES
Mounting a birdhouse is easy and doesn't take much effort or time. Imagine the sweet sound of birds singing as you sit back on your lawn chair..un-plug and savor the sweet serenity of nature in the comfort of your own private sanctuary.
Did you know ?
-Many birds are important in plant reproduction through their services as pollinators or seed dispersers.
-Being in the company of Birds = Improved Mental Health for Humans. Studies have shown spending time in nature improves both cognition and mental health
-Birds play a critical role in the ecosystem. Helping to keep populations in check helps to insure survival for all species of animals/insects etc...
I design, build, deliver and install various types of birdhouses.
The nesting boxes I make typically attract the following Birds:

Some Key Features of my Birdhouses:
-Overhang roof, drainage holes and vents to keep the nest dry and cool
-Side door opens for easy cleaning
-Weather resistant plated and/or galvanized deck screws
-Predator resistant entrance hole
A word of caution: Golf courses, cultivated fields, gardens, and yards are potentially good habitats for nest boxes, but avoid areas where pesticides and herbicides are used. These are not only harmful to birds, they decrease and sometimes eliminate the insect populations that are the primary food source for many cavity-nesting species.
To Mount the house on a free standing pole I recommend the following:
1) 10 Foot 3/4" Electrical Conduit Pipe (cut off approx. 2 feet) Pole can be greased to discourage predators from climbing pole
2) 3/4" 2 hole Strap (to secure pipe to house)
3) 1/4" thick and 2" long bolt with 1/4" nut and washer
I also sell pre-mounted houses .
