The assortment of birdhouses and birdfeeder kits is impressive. Some kit manufacturers also offer specialty wildlife feeders and houses to attract butterflies, ladybugs and bats. All of these kits are fun and easy to make for your own backyard; great as gifts and popular at craft shows. Birdhouses are also rewarding projects to do with your kids, grandchildren or scout troops, since there are birdhouses and birdfeeder kits for kids too.
Most kits are designed to attract specific types of birds – from the American Robin to the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker. Birdhouses styles range from Classic Colonial and towering gazebos to double-decker and multi-family units. Virtually all the kits are made of wood – rot-resistant cedar or alder, for example – and some require staining or painting. Most models have removable floors, sides and/or roofs for easy cleaning. And speaking of cleaning, consider a bird bath for your "tweeties". Or visit this "wild" place for premium birdseed at discount prices.
The birdfeeder kits are also easy to make! They attract a variety of fine-feathered friends to your yard, depending on the type of birdseed you use. Feeder kits range from classic hinged-roof designs to multi-hoppers and fly-through units.
Some of the kit manufacturers also offer a variety of non-kit wildlife feeders and houses. For example, you can purchase squirrel feeders, suet cages and ornate gazebo houses in pre-assembled form. Also, if you're interested in creating more complex structures, you may want to review the “plans” listed at some of the participating KitGuy websites.
