Has anyone done this before? Where did they find plans? What time of year is best to do this?

Matthew W., I seem to be following you around here, just 5 hours later... Ours was found on birdsandblooms website. I Don't remember if it's .com or .net, or what. Its best to build a species specific box. If its too generic, it won't suit any species at all. You can do it any time of year. Its nice to have as a winter project, so you can think of spring while you work. I'd put it out a little before whenever spring thaw is in our area. For me, that's year round because we never freeze.

I did a search for "free birdhouse blueprints" and was able to find them that way. Early to mid spring is the best time.

I have a dozen birdhouses in my yard. The birds spread seeds too, so we get flowers in new spaces each spring. It was fun watching the finches picking the sunflower seeds from the sunflowers this summer. The sunflowers we did not plant! The just grew.
