What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

(Bird) House Hunters

Song Bird Garden

A few years ago, I did a post about interesting-looking bird houses. I thought it was time to take another look. Last time, I focused exclusively on Etsy sellers. This time, I’m opening it up to the wider world.

One of the things I learned about while writing the 2016 post is that apparently birdhouses need to meet certain standards to be safe for their tenants. That said, today’s birdhouses are just about design. I leave it up to the biologists and bird folks to debate about whether or not they meet the bird building codes. If you want to learn more about what makes a responsible birdhouse, go check out the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s NestWatch website.

  4. Sad to say but I have very few birds in my area. If I had one that wanted a house any of these would be fun to have in the yard – Hal

  6. These are all adorable and very well crafted. As much as I find the architectural ones delightful, my favourites are actually the more minimal ones – the lemon slice and the donut-esque one. My youngest son and I made and painted a birdhouse last year but we have not figured out how to attach it to a tree since we foolishly embarked on the project without considering that. We don’t want to damage a tree trunk but we also don’t have low enough hanging branches for that to be an option.
