Choosing a Free Bird House Plan

Before you choose a free bird house plan you'll want to decide where you're going to put the finished house. This will help you decide what type (tree, hanging, pole, etc.) and size of bird house you should choose.

Some bird houses are better than others for certain types of birds. Choose a plan with an entrance hole size that makes sense and is a size that allows the birds plenty of room to nest.
