    A few years ago I bought the cutest little birdhouse in the North Georgia mountains. I had every intention of painting it and hanging it in the yard. I found it buried in the garage :oops: Does anyone know if one color is better than another? Are birds attracted to one color and turned off by another? Since it isn't very big I think it will appeal to a wren or maybe a sparrow. I promise to get it painted and hung up very soon!

    I tend to go for browns and greens for birdhouses but I know some of our members have been far more ambitious, and artistic, than me. I do like the idea of a white house with a red roof though. :-D

    I always go with fairly light colors as birds get hot too. By all means make it colorful. 8)

    I prefer the natural look so probably wouldn't paint it at all.
