    Clever idea! Just one suggestion – make the perch removable. It is generally not a good idea to have a perch on a birdhouse because predator birds will use them to wait for the baby birds to stick their heads out – Lunch! Also, the hole size is very specific to the type of bird you want to attract (or exclude).

    Hi trimtab21,

    thanks a lot for your comment and happy you like it!
    Your suggestion regarding the perch is great… I’ll keep it in mind when it’ll be produced.
    For the different hoe sizes we are already thinking about some sort of removeable rings indifferent sizes so customers can decide which type of bird they want to give a birdhouse.
    Hopefully customers will choose for different ones… 😉
    Thanks and best!

    This idea has already been published in the year 2008! But created by another designer!

    Hi Luciana,

    thanks a lot for the information.
    I wasn’t aware of this design when I created mine but I still see a major difference to the one you mentioned.

    Any birdhouse needs to have a front roof due to the following two reasons:
    1) Rain should never ever get into a birdhouse.
    In the design you linked to rain can get easily into the birdhouse while my design secures it.
    2) If a cat, a weasel or any other enemy of a bird waits on top of the birdhouse it should never have the chance to view the hole or grab into it.
    In the design you linked to it would be very easy for any bird’s enemy to catch or grab the bird.

    So, I see my design as an improvement, while I’d also say “great minds think alike” and I like the other design also!
    Thanks and best regards!

    This is a clever design, so I’m sad to tell you that it’s actually unsafe to use tin cans as birdhouses. They easily collect heat and can cause serious harm to the eggs and chicks inside. For the well being of the birds, please reconsider your product. http://www.backyardwildlifehabitats.com/id53.html
