 9/9/11 Birdhouse Facts Bird-watching is a fast-growing hobby that provides  hours of enjoyment, even if you go no farther than  your own back yard. Birdhouses help attract birds to  your yard, but it is important to commit to being a  good birdhouse  landlord before mounting boxes.  This includes understanding design and mounting  features that help protect backyard birds from  predators.

Have the birdhouse in place by February in the south and by mid to late March in northern areas. Mounting a birdhouse on a tree gives predators such as squirrels, raccoons and neighborhood cats easy access to birds and their eggs.
