Build a nest box in winter, and watch baby birds in spring

Putting together a simple nest box now could result in young birds hatching outside your window next spring. Swallows, bluebirds, chickadees, nuthatches, creepers, thrushes, warblers, sparrows and wrens are a few of songbirds that appreciate man made housing.

Wild Birds Unlimited has birdhouse kits that would make a fun, family weekend woodworking project. Build a cozy songbird nest box, that they'll roost in all winter and then create a family in come spring.

The kits are made from long-lasting cedar and boxed in Michigan. It comes with all the hardware and easy to follow instructions. Only a screwdriver is needed along with a little muscle to screw the pre-drilled pieces together.
