Decorative Bird Houses
Bird House plans include finch and wren houses, castles, cottages, churches and historical buildings with flags and balconies.
Copper Top Bird Houses
Copper roof tops are durable and weather to a beautiful patina, or polish to protect its shiny finish.
Victorian Bird Houses
Bird House patterns include gabled Victorian mansions and manors with balconies, ideal for backyard birds.
Bird house patterns range from the ornately decorative to classic vintage and offer safety and shelter for flying visitors. Rustic bird house plans are ideal for use in camps, parks and wildlife preserves, while decorative designs make a backyard an inviting outdoor environment. Bird hole openings help to determine which birds will be able to access houses, and inner rooms help some birds roost or stay warm in the winter months.
Purple Martin Houses
Aluminum bird houses for sunny regions and wooden for moderate temperatures. Place away from branches, high in the air.
Environmentally friendly bat houses attract and house bats. Bats aid in dispersing seed and controlling insect populations.
Shelter Eastern Bluebirds with a 1-1/2" - 1-3/8" hole. Western and Mountain Bluebirds need a larger 1-9/16" opening.
Small slots encourage butterflies to fly through and nest. Plant flowers to attract and create a butterfly garden.
Tips: Room count is essential when attracting birds such as Purple Martins, who like to nest in colonies. Materials are important in climates that are hot or cold - wood is well insulated, and vinyl and aluminum keep the interiors cooler for hotter climates. Hole diameter helps determine which species will nest as the hole must be big enough to fit the species while also small enough to keep out predators.
Birding itself is an environmentally and animal friendly hobby, so our bird houses should be as well. All of our bird houses are eco-friendly and safe for wildlife habitation. Many of our bird houses are American made, and we proudly label all of our American made products with the Made in USA flag. When viewing additional images of the products, look for our American flag symbol to the left.
