No bird will live in such a small space. So be ready that the small bird house will be the source of food only. In order to be a good and useful feeder, the bird house must have a large enough opening for the bird to fly into it comfortably. Decorative bird houses are often made so the bird can’t enter. So, if you need your bird house to be functional, make sure that you check its properties before buying.

Actually an opening for the bird to fly in and enough hollow space to fit the bird and its food is all that is required in a bird house. The way it looks outside depends on your imagination. Bird houses come in different forms. For example, a very popular look for a wooden bird house is a ship. The wooden houses are often made to look like pirate ships. Before buying this kind of a bird house, make sure it is functional and will fit your surroundings.
