Having a home for your feathered friends will encourage the birds to keep visiting your backyard. If you have a garden, you want to attract birds to establish a healthy balance. Birds consume thousands of insects, especially in the spring when they’re feeding their young. To help support this environment, I’m made DIY Birdhouse Plans from scrap wood. If you have scrap wood laying around, you could easily build this birdhouse for your backyard.
