At Flying Friends, we offer the best housing and feeding accessories for wild birds. Our bird houses are designed specifically for the birds you want to attract most.
No matter if you’re looking for small and rustic or large and colorful, our bird houses are constructed to be both charming and functional. Whether the wild birds that visit your yard are looking to build a nest or hide from predators, they’ll love the warmth and safety that our beautiful little homes provide.
In addition to the usual house wren, black-capped chickadee, eastern bluebird, house sparrow, and tree swallow houses, we also carry many specialty houses. These include purple martin houses, wood duck houses, bat houses, owl houses (for screech owls and saw-whet owls), kestrel houses, great crested flycatcher houses, and houses for all types of woodpeckers (downy, hairy, red-bellied, and northern flicker). We offer installation and delivery services for these houses, so let us know if you need help!
Depending on the species of bird, a bird house should be hung by mid-March. You can leave it up all year long, cleaning it only when necessary. We recommend cleaning it if you a) suspect there is a wasp nest inside, or b) suspect that there are dead birds or eggs inside. Otherwise there is no need to clean, the birds are perfectly capable of removing and adding materials as they see fit. If you are having trouble with wasps continually building nests in your bird houses, buy a bar of soap and rub it on the top of the inside of the house. This will make it so that the wasps can’t attach their nests.
