Birds that visit you are a part of the whole ecosystem, so attracting them to your school or backyard is important, but also fun! And it makes sure that birds will continue visiting!
Often called nesting boxes because they provide a safe place for birds to build their nests, bird houses also protect these beautiful winged creatures from the elements and predators. In the winter months, they give visiting birds a place to snuggle together for warmth away from the cold air.
Since birds eat insects, they will help to eliminate unwanted pests in your playground/yard and free you from needing to use otherwise harmful pesticides.
Also, birds love to eat weed seeds, and there are many birds who love to sip nectar from flowers and help to pollinate. With the bee population diminishing, attracting birds who do this is really critical.
Lastly, there is NOTHING like a bird song to brighten up your day :)
The natural habitat of birds is diminishing every year due to urban sprawl, so assisting them with a safe structure to live in will help keep their numbers strong!
The houses with the clear backs are for mounting onto windows. They come with suction cups, and a one-way mirror so birds aren’t frightened by your movements!
By the way, Robins don’t nest in enclosed houses. They need a platform, so our Robin platforms have a back and a “floor” or platform, but the front and both sides are open.
Houses may be of various materials, but they are all made of natural wood. Clean-out panels may swing or pivot, and may not look like the picture displayed.
Don’t forget to get a post if you don’t have trees nearby. Actually, if you want the birdhouse or Robin platform in your garden where there are no trees, the post is a perfect solution
Birdhouses come fully assembled. Make sure you order the correct hole size!
