Clever Gardening Technique

Build Birdhouse To Match The Birds
Before you buy or make a birdhouse, make sure it will attract the birds you want. The size of the box and the diameter of the opening will dictate what kinds of birds may move in. Find out what sorts of birds are most likely to be nesting in your area, then design or choose accordingly.
