    Birdhouse

    This is great! Just a couple of points for the maker and commenters, not to be annoying but because I learned a lot myself from watching Youtube and reading books on the subject and want to pass this on:1. Perches (usually wood dowels) are discouraged since they are not necessary for birds, but often used by predators.2. Make scatches or use metal cloth on the inside near the hole so the birds can climb out of the house and can grip easier.3. Making a few holes in the bottom (for drainage)4. Add a back5. Leave the walls a little shorter in height so that there can be a little airflow.6. Add some way for it to be opened so that it can be cleaned.Thanks so much for taking the time to make this Instructable and thanks for the commenters. Birdhouses are fun to make and can be very relaxing ...

Birdhouses are fun to make and can be very relaxing after a long day in the salt mines. Best of luck
