We are in the midst of a housing crisis of sorts, but there’s good news to report. Whether you live in the city or the country, the suburbs or the mountains, you can do your part to help birds find a great place to call home. Bird houses can be put up in backyards, pastures, orchards, playgrounds, woodlots – you name it. And while the birds may not be too choosy about the design features, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be. Here are some unique models to drive your creative ideas.
