Building a Better Birdhouse

posted Apr 18, 2019, 5:59 PM by Roxie Rochat
Joe Meche stressed how important it is to provide birdhouses that protect their inhabitants from predators. 
Guidelines and dimensions used to be available on the WDFW website, but haven't been ported over to their new website yet.
Luckily for us, you can access them through the "Wayback Machine" that archives past versions of websites.
Here are some links:
Nesting and Roosting Boxes for Birds has general tips and dimensions.
Woodworking Projects for Backyard Wildlife with project plans for several different kinds of nestboxes

Be sure to take the perches off of any existing birdhouses that you have - they just make it too easy for predators to snatch out nestlings!
