Cartoon hand holds a phone with the Naturally Florida podcast page on the screen.

Are you interested in learning about which birds use birdhouses in Florida?
Only certain types of birds will use birdhouses, also known as nestboxes, and each species has a specific type of birdhouse they will use. Cavity-nesting birds are the type of bird that you are most likely to attract to your yard with a birdhouse or nestbox.
Birds come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. They play a critical role in our ecosystems, keeping insect populations in check, serving as a valuable prey item for our larger mammals, and helping to disperse seeds!
Just like people, birds need food, water, and shelter to survive.
