Bird Hotel Help Question

Good Morning,

I'm not sure if you can help or not, I just dont know who else to ask. We have a bird hotel for finches outside, the bird hotel is falling apart and it seems to be fully occupied. I have another hotel to put up, but how do I it? When do it I do it? Do I put up in the vicinity and hope they take over the new one? I dont want to disrupt their families, but I really need to switch out this hotel.

Any help would be greatly appreciated or if you can point me in the right direction that would be great.

Thank you.

We live in stressful times and being able to lower stress levels naturally has to be good. Taking time out to watch wild birds can assist in the lowering of stress as well as providing good cheap entertainment potential.

Tie it or even tape it together? NEW
by: Jeanne

Is it just crumbling into little pieces, or is it coming apart where it was nailed? If the walls or top and bottoms are separating, I would get some twine and wrap the house up as best as possible as to keep it together until the babies leave the nest. Good luck...

hi, Judy's suggestions are correct you can't move the nests at this point. Do as she suggests.

I'm not sure I have the right answer for you. But my thinking is that if you put up the new hotel in the vicinity, the current families will probably not change their location. They don't know their hotel is falling apart and will continue to raise their young there. The new hotel will probably attract new residents. I would probably let the families finish raising their young in the old hotel then take it down when it's vacated. If possible maybe plug each hole as each family vacates so a new pair won't move in.

Behaps others will contribute their thoughts on this, too.
