Winter Bird Houses (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

Anyone with experience building or keeping bird houses in the winter? Tell us the kind of house, how you keep it clean and predator-free, and what birds stay or arrive in winter.

PS. I attached a picture of a young hawk on my porch rail. Jumped on my lawn chair with a white stuffed owl and stared. Hawk flew to a branch a few minutes after taking this photo. Maybe some owl nest or box in the area.

I plan some day to put up an owl house in a near tree but I think the local possums, squirrels, raccoons, snakes or armadillos will get. Large metal 10 foot pole would probably be best.
