What is the Perfect Place to Install a Birdhouse?

There are number of methods to install Birdhouses. Birds will often select places they are more comfortable with, so if a present birdhouse area is not getting any tenants, it may be time to find another location. Birdhouses should be positioned at locations that limit number of possible predators and human disruptions; nevertheless, oftentimes these tips cannot be fulfilled. The best recommendation is to mount the birdhouse in the perfect location because of the restrictions on your lawn.

Birdhouses positioned under roof or eaves will be open to less amount of moisture and eventually stay for long time. Apart from this these sheltered locations will be much more advantageous as they are hard for predators to reach as well.

Birdhouses have to withstand winds in all seasons and should be placed an adequate range from the ground. Various birds require different amount of spacing for birdhouses. Some of the birds, like wrens, are extremely territorial and can fill up various birdhouses from the location with temporary or dummy nests. Should this happen, take away the temporary nests frequently to permit other birds to claim these un-utilized birdhouses.

A dummy nest will not include a nesting cup for eggs, as most of the time it is filled completely with big twigs stopping other birds from easily entering the birdhouse.

Ultimately, birdhouses should installed be at reasonable distance from the bird feeders, because feeder usually attracts predators that may prevent small birds like songbirds to nest close by.

Distance between the Birdhouses

Many species of birds are naturally territorial. Some varieties choose to home very far from other birds of the same varieties, while other varieties can stay as near as 5 m (15') from another birdhouse.

Too many birdhouses in the same area may cause some birds not to build their nest while other bird varieties, such as wrens, will be forced to fill up the birdhouses within their area with brush as well as other materials to avoid other birds using their so called nest-boxes. These nests are loaded rapidly by male wrens if they are being emptied every day.

Establishing a Birdhouse

Listed here are 6 ways you can mount your birdhouse

- Steel post/pole(Preferred one)

- Slick developing façade

- Brick developing façade

- Wooden siding

- Wooden fence posts

- Hanging over the chain (Ensure it is protected from wind)

 

Dealing with Birdhouses on eastern side

Though other direction will do, facing birdhouses east is regarded as the best. If it’s a summer season, it may be preferable to deal with entry holes on the east to avoid overheating due to hot afternoon. Birdhouses having entry hole on the east get morning hours sunlight as the birdhouse is chilly from the night before.

Steer clear of dealing with birdhouses in the direction of existing wind. Birdhouse entrance doors should also be installed away from bird feeders, in this way nesting birds does not get agitated when possible predators go to the bird feeder.

How much Higher to Install a Birdhouse?

Depending upon the bird varieties, the birdhouse should be installed inside a specific elevation range. Among each species there exists a range that is right to install your birdhouse.

However there exists some exceptions and birds often nest outside these ranges, particularly if there are any other nesting cavities in the region. Birdhouses designed for nuthatches, chickadees as well as wrens can be installed around 1.5 m (5') over the ground. This will make it easy for you to clean up the aged nests and find out if the birdhouse is engaged since because of the height of birdhouse entrance hole you can clearly see.

Bird Feeders & Birdhouses

Bird feeders attract an assorted populace of birds, a few of which may be predators or territorial birds that are nesting in your birdhouse. Make sure to keep birdhouses at a minimum of 5 m (15') away from bird feeders to provide some range between the two.

 In case your backyard is small, and the distance between birdhouse and bird feeder will not be ideal, use bird feed that draws in certain types of birds and does not attract possible predators. The safety for any birdhouse comes from its place where it is kept. Attempt to always hang up the birdhouse on place having a shade to protect it from the warmth during the hot hrs of the day.

Some birds throw their droppings directly out of the nest, therefore you might want to steer clear of places where waste could be a nuisance. So, when you have selected a decent area that gives basic safety towards the birdhouse and its inhabitants, your curiousness, excitement and the wait begins to see if your little birdhouse is going to be visited by some new bird family.
