Each birdhouse is hand-built out of a cedar fence post. It is specifically sized for California's native Western Bluebirds. They are built with no perch and with drainage holes in the bottom. No perches ensure that predators have no way to get to the birds. The drainage holes help keep the birds nice and dry. Your blank house will come with instructions on how and where to hang it and some tips on caring for it and your future bird friends!
Facts: The Western Bluebird has been struggling to find nesting places because they're being displaced by the European starlings. European starlings (a.k.a. house sparrows) were one of a number of species that were deliberately imported from Europe and released in the United States, in part to establish wildlife that was familiar to European immigrants. The Western Bluebird is a secondary cavity nester. That is, it uses a nest that was excavated by another bird in a previous season; usually an old woodpecker cavity. However, they will also use a bird house. The Western bluebird like the Eastern Bluebird is forced out of many nesting areas by the European Starling. The European starling is a very aggressive secondary cavity nester. It will even push baby birds of other species out of their nest and take the nest for themselves.
