There are many different shapes and sizes of bird houses on the market. And if you want the best results it's a good idea to incorporate as many different types as you can into your yard.

It's also important that you place them in a variety of locations. Trees, fences, roof corners, and wherever else you can find to install. Place some high and some low. Remember the ground species too.

You can buy houses that are complete and ready to go. They are often made out of wood or some type of resin material. You can also buy kits and build your own. Or you can buy houses that are complete except for the finishing touches.

These can be a lot of fun! The buildings done for you and all you need to do is stain or paint. And remember you can decorate to your hearts content. After all why not make your bird houses part of your backyard landscaping décor?

If you just don't have the skills to do your own decorating not to worry. There are plenty of fine finished products on the market ready. All they need is to be installed.

One thing you should know. Some species prefer the basic look. Just a plain wood birdhouse. In fact some species are so fussy they won't go anywhere near your decorative houses.

But that's okay because these decorative houses add character to your yard and as long as you provide adequate choices you've got nothing to worry about.

Before rushing out to buy all those houses it's important to know who your local residents are because different species require different housing styles. When you know who is native to your area you can provide the right housing needs.

You've all heard the saying “build it and they will come" and this is certainly true with the birds. And if you really want to entice them be sure to add a couple of bird baths and feeders.

So what will you choose for your decorative bird house? A lighthouse? Windmill? Beach house? Mountain Retreat? Or how about a Church? Your choices are endless and we truly haven't even touched on the possibilities.

You might also consider adding some hummingbird feeders if you live in an area native to these beautiful little birds. Here you can find all kinds of decorative feeders that are made of art glass.
