You may use any combination of materials in the creation of your entry.
It must be an actual, full-size birdhouse which would be suitable for outdoor use, either suspended or placed on a pedestal.
Birdhouse must have an entry hole for the birds, as well as a means of cleaning out the birdhouse at the end of each season.
Birdhouses must have been entirely constructed by the entrant(s).
Manufactured birdhouses which have been dismantled, reassembled, or modified will not be considered.
