Transforming your garden into a vibrant sanctuary for birds is easier than you might think. With our latest collection of whimsical and functional bird houses, you can add both character and purpose to your outdoor space. Whether you're a seasoned birding enthusiast or just beginning, our new additions are designed to charm your feathered friends and bring them closer to your home. Let’s explore what makes a good home for birds, how to introduce these bird houses into your garden, and the unique designs offered by Exhart that will delight both you and your avian visitors.

What Makes a Good Home for Birds?

A good bird house must meet several essential criteria to be a suitable home for your feathered friends. Firstly, the size and entrance hole should be appropriate for the bird species you aim to attract. For example, smaller birds like chickadees and wrens prefer entrance holes around 1-1/8 inches in diameter, while larger birds like bluebirds need holes about 1-1/2 inches wide.

Secondly, proper ventilation and drainage are crucial. Ensure the bird house has small vents near the top to allow air circulation and tiny holes in the bottom to prevent water accumulation. The bird house should also be made from durable, non-toxic materials to withstand the elements and provide a safe environment for the birds.

Lastly, the location and security of the bird house matter. Place the house in a quiet, sheltered spot, preferably facing away from prevailing winds. Mount it high enough to protect from predators but accessible enough for you to clean and maintain it.

How to Introduce Your Bird House into Your Garden

Once you've chosen the perfect bird house, introducing it into your garden involves careful placement and some initial upkeep. Start by selecting a suitable location that offers shelter and a clear flight path. Trees, tall shrubs, or dedicated poles can be excellent choices. Ensure the bird house is securely fastened to avoid swaying, which can deter birds from nesting.

Monitoring the bird house in the first few weeks is essential. Birds are more likely to move in if they feel the area is safe and undisturbed. Regularly check for any signs of predators and make necessary adjustments. Keep the bird house clean by removing old nests at the end of the breeding season to prepare it for future occupants.

How to Help Birds with Materials Needed for Their Nests

Beyond providing a bird house, you can further support your garden’s avian visitors by offering materials for nest building. Birds typically seek out natural items such as twigs, leaves, grass, and moss. You can help by leaving small piles of these materials in your garden.

Additionally, birds appreciate soft materials for lining their nests. You can provide feathers, pet hair, and shredded paper in small quantities. Avoid synthetic materials and dryer lint, as they can be harmful. Placing these materials in a mesh bag or a small container hung near the bird house can make them easily accessible for your feathered friends.
