Most Likely Nest Box Tenants
For centuries mankind has been enjoying the company of wild birds, watching their antics and offering them food and shelter. Those new to birding tend to search for houses designed for their favorite birds often seen at feeders. Unfortunately, some of our all-time favorite birds to watch do not readily use manmade housing. Hummingbirds, cardinals, robins, and jays are among these finicky dwellers. The good news is that many birds that we do not see at our feeders, will readily house in manmade cavities; some even depend on it.

Wrens, chickadees, titmice, and sparrows seemingly cannot be prevented from using houses we offer, and they are regular visitors to feeders as well. Additionally, woodpeckers, some finches, flycatchers, and warblers all appreciate a roosting box in your yard. Other birds, like the beloved cardinal and active blue jay, may entertain you at the feeder but prefer to nest in open areas, and will not use houses. Robins and phoebes will not use manmade houses per se but may use a specialty covered platform if offered. Hummingbirds, an all-time favorite attraction at nectar feeders, create their tiny nests on tree branches most often, and are not attracted to manmade housing.

Many birds that we do not typically think of in our backyard sanctuaries, however, do use nest boxes, so you can attract an even bigger variety of avian visitors. Several types of ducks nest in cavities found in trees, but cannot excavate their own. As forests decrease, so do the nest cavities; especially around parks and well manicured backyards. Those of us with ponds or lakes near them can offer houses to wood ducks, common mergansers, or common goldeneyes. Some birds of prey, such as American kestrels, barn owls, and barred owls will roost in a manmade nest box, and offer an exciting change from songbirds. Screech owls have even been known to use houses not only for rearing young, but also as a protected area to consume their prey. More well known birds, such as purple martins and bluebirds will not only use nest boxes, but are almost entirely dependent upon houses supplied by humans for their nesting needs.

Creating a bird sanctuary will certainly bring you delight, and enhance your bird watching experience. Based on your location, habitat, and space concerns, you may be able to place some specific bird houses, for some wonderful and unexpected feathered friends. Consider placing roosting boxes for different types of birds throughout the area, so you can enjoy different types of birds both feeding and nesting. Check out our wide array of bird houses and accessories in our Bird Houses department.
