Late Summer and Early Fall Birdhouses
There is no bad time to put up birdhouses, and the best time to put them up is as soon as you purchase one!
Late summer and into early fall are ideal times to put a birdhouse in your yard. This is before the breeding season and give the birds plenty of time to locate the birdhouse. Some birds may investigate the house, learn where it is and possibly use it as shelter. If you cannot get your birdhouse in place by fall, it should be in place as early in the winter as possible. When the cold winter season sets in your edible birdhouse will provide food and shelter for your feathered friends.
