Perches make it easier for predators to access to a nest, so cShoresal’s new birdhouse design doesn’t use them.

If you would like to add a perch to your birdhouse:

  1. Mark center of birdhouse approximately 1.5” to 2”
    below the entrance hole
  2. Drill through front at mark using a 7/16” bit
  3. Cut a 3” section of 7/16” dowel and insert into the
    hole. A soft blow with a hammer will nudge it
    in until approximately 1/4” of dowel is showing
    inside the birdhouse.


  1. Pre-drill a small hole and attach a cabinet size decorative door knob a couple of inches below the entrance hole.
