One Board Birdhouse from Birds and Blooms Magazine

Here is my second build of this project from Birds and Blooms magazine. Just a little project to get ready for the upcoming nesting season.

We haven't had a lot of success with bird houses in the garden before, but I think that is partially due to the abundance of natural nesting areas. We always get 2-3 Mourning Dove nests atop the wisteria trellis.

This One Board Birdhouse is a great kids project as it only involves cutting straight lines. The only tricky part might be drilling the hole, as it is best done with a hole saw or large spade bit.

Once you have built this simple version, you could go on to customize it in many different ways.
