Why Should You Build a Birdhouse? Benefits of Birdhouses:
What are the benefits of building houses that birds need at your home or any part of your garden? What are its advantages?
Preserving the Wildlife and the Balance of Nature
Nature is totally based on balance. However, today, suburbs and areas with intense woodcutting activities disturbed this balance. Most bird species are lacking cavities on old trees, which can be nests for them. Considering that there are plenty of migratory bird species, this disturbed balance does not only affect the area you are living in. Building a birdhouse is an activity that will be useful for our planet.
Weed and Pest Control
Most backyard bird species feed with pests, weeds, or a combination of seeds. Birds are fed with weed and their seeds until the end of spring. Thus, they slow down the invasion of weeds in your garden.
Parent birds are busy filling the mouth of their babies with insects towards the end of Spring and the beginning of Summer. Baby birds do not like anything but insects, which their parents recently hunt. This is good news for your garden! Birds feed on various pests that can be harmful to your gardens such as white flies, aphids, moths, earwigs, spiders, and worms.
There are different birdhouse types with different textures and colors, which can be compatible with the overall garden decoration. Pick a birdhouse design, which will make your garden look more beautiful and increase the value of your home.
Natural Therapy for Stress
Watching birds flying around your house, listening to their sounds, and interacting with them is great for your mood. Watching your neighbor bird family feeding and growing up while spending time outdoors can be the perfect natural therapy method for you.
About Downloadable Laser Cut Bird House Project
In this project, we have drawn a bird box plan for CNC laser cutters. There are 19 2D parts in the design. You can pick plywood materials manufactured for outdoors or 3 mm thick wood for these parts.
This bird house plan includes all features that must be in a bird house:
- Ventilation holes at the front and back to prevent overheating and keep the babies comfortable.
- 4 ventilation – drainage holes to discharge the water and to assist the ventilation.
- 45-degree slope roof with extensions to prevent the house from rain.
- The round entrance makes the squirrels gnaw it so that they can enter the nest.
This birdhouse is planned to be hung on a tree or a fixed object. If the area you are going to hang in this bird house is windy and there are no branches that will prevent it from moving, you can remove the parts for hanging and holes in the design.
The design may not be suitable for the protection of the bird species you would like to attract. If the raptors in your area can use some of the features of the design to attack the baby birds, you can adjust and remove them.
There are 1 ½ inch wide entrance holes in the design. This size may be a disadvantage for the protection depending on your habitat in your area. It may not be suitable for the entrance of the birds, which will use the nest. Please research the entrance hole size for the birds you are planning to attract. If a different width is required, you can edit the hole accordingly.
