Spring is just around the corner and the birds are definitely getting excited! Time to clean out your birdhouses if you haven’t already done so. Houses should be easy to clean out by removing any old nesting material, wash inside of house with a solution of 1 part bleach and 9 parts water, rinse house with fresh water and then let dry before replacing house. Remember your house should be in a location where it will get morning sun to warm the nest and afternoon shade so that the house does not overheat. Make sure the house is a minimum of 5 feet off the ground or ledges to deter cats and other predators from being able to access the nest box.
