Thinking of installing a birdhouse in your backyard so you can observe avian family life? Like our homes, birdhouses must meet standards in order to be safe for occupancy. Please learn about the necessary requirements HERE (see the link below). Any birdhouse you purchase should also be built to these specifications. Birdhouses with thin walls and/or metal roofs may look cute in your yard, but eggs and young birds can cook in them in the heat of summer.
