Bird House Colors
What color do you think birds would go to; red, white,
or a different colored bird house?
Pretty colors will not matter except to the humans that look at them.
Safety, basic needs and location is the birds primary drive.
If you are making bird houses, try to blend the houses into their
placement background to offer protection from being attractive to
predators. Birds will respond to that better than "pretty"
houses. Humans might find them pretty, birds may not, but then again, you
would have to be a bird to know!
