Advantages of wood bird houses

Purchasing a wooden bird house has several advantages, such as initial cost and expense to maintain. One caution when using a wooden bird house is making sure that whatever your bird house is mounted to is not easily climbed by predators. This will reduce your chances of attracting whatever type of bird you're attempting to attract. Types of wood to look for are cypress, cedar or oak as they will provide durability over many years. Make sure that whatever type of wood you choose, you either paint or protect in that manner to retard the natural effect of weathering.
