Every bird lover with a back yard should consider having at least one bird house to encourage local birds to make their home in the yard during nesting season. If you have decided to build a bird house to encourage birds to nest in your yard, you can spend a lot of time learning about the different nesting requirements of the various species of birds in order to create the right birdhouse design. If you want to save a lot of time and a lot of work, you can simply purchase one of our bird house kits that is already pre-cut and pre-measured to make the kind of home your favorite birds will enjoy. Just assemble the bird house kit and mount the finished birdhouse in the right place in your yard.
Pre-made birdhouse kits are especially useful if you want to get your children or grandchildren interested in the hobby of bird watching. Simply purchase one of our easy-to-assemble bird house kits and help your youngster put it together by following the simple instructions. Even children as young as five years old can assemble some of our kits! For example, our Eco Friendly Bird House Kit from Songbird Essentials is one of our most popular bird house kits for kids. It is made from recycled plastic and is very easy to put together to make a fine home for small birds such as Chickadees and Wrens. The kit includes stickers so your child can decorate the birdhouse. The kit also provides an Audubon bird that sings a real bird song. This helps youngsters learn to identify some of the bird songs they hear in nature.
You and your young ones can create a perfect home for a lively family of Chickadees when you assemble our Chickadee House Kit or our Chickadee Nesting Box Kit. Both of these bird houses kits are very easy to put together. You may be rewarded by watching a Chickadee family grow up right in your yard.
Wrens are charming little birds that are much appreciated by many bird lovers, including very young ones. In the wild, wrens like to nest in tree cavities, but they will readily accept a wren house if you make one available in your yard. Our cedar Wren House Kit is easy to assemble and is just the right size to attract wrens. Put it together with the help of your young ones and place the finished wren house about six to ten feet off the ground in a leafy tree to discourage predators.
Bluebirds are another bird that likes to use tree cavities for nesting. Unfortunately, many of the tree cavities that Bluebirds require have disappeared as their habitat has been destroyed. In many cases, more aggressive birds take over the few tree cavities that remain and it is often difficult for Bluebirds to find a suitable place to make their nests. Your children can help local Bluebirds find a good place to raise their young by putting together one of our Blue Bird House Kits or Bluebird Nesting Box Kit with your help.
Birdhouses kits make an ideal gift for any budding young carpenter or naturalist. Young children are fascinated by nature and watching birds is often at the top of their list of favorite activities. Your children or grandchildren are likely to remember and treasure the time you spent together assembling one of our bird house kits.
