I love all kinds of birds and I have birdhouses everywhere, but I can never take the shots some of you guys (members) take.
The Sparrows took over all of the houses except the wren's cause they can't fit through the wholes...but boy do they try to get in there every year

I have more houses around the garage.
I love all birds birds, but Chickadee are at the top of my preference list!

Haha I love that first birdhouse @Gemma! We've just been looking at making some birdhouses for the garden, but sadly I don't think they will look as impressive as that one ;)

It is a pretty cool birdhouse, aside from when the nesting materials hangs out the holes:D
I'm not sure why it didn't come with a perch, but it was an easy fix
I like that only the Wren can actually fit and nest there, and every year we enjoy the male calling song

We purchased a bluebird house a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to putting it up. However, we couldn’t stop with one birdhouse. We also put up a wren house, a second bluebird house, and a beneficial big house. My wife loves them and I wouldn’t be surprised if we added a few more with time.

I picked up 16 of these from a guy at a farmers market. He makes them for 10 bucks a piece.

I hung 10 of them so far, 8 have birds in them. The six I just got need to be painted.

Picked up a bug house but was told not to put it out until next year.

@addy1 Did they say why they didn't recommend putting up the bug house until next year??
A older lady told us that when we picked it up at Costco. Very quick conversation. Wished I had more time to talk to her. She said it gets filled with debris this time of year. I have not researched it yet.

I just sort of stuck them here and there. Some hanging a few feet from another. The birds don't seem to care. Mainly hung them in trees.
