Undoubtedly you have at least a few friends or family members who are big fans of their avian visitors. Some of the biggest bird enthusiasts have many birdhouses adorning their trees and decks and windowsills. So, what’s the draw?

In the spring, birdhouses are an ideal place for bird mommas to lay their eggs. Birds play a vital role in our ecosystem. They control pests in our yards by nibbling up those insects you wish you didn’t have. They also love to feast on weed seeds, which translates to less, you guessed it, weeding. Birds also play an important role in flower pollination. Related Post: 24 Truly Unique Bird Baths (Starting At Less Than $25!)
