If you live on a lot with open areas, like a lawn or fields, Eastern bluebirds are easy to attract. Carolina chickadees and tufted titmouse can be enticed to nest in a birdhouse in wooded lots, as well as forest edges. If you have a larger open yard, you can also attract tree swallows and even purple martins if you are lucky.

Again, if you are near a wooded area, you may be able to get an Eastern screech owl pair to nest.

Be aware that black rat snakes are notorious for climbing poles or posts that are used to mount bird houses. So, to protect your feathered friends, a baffle also needs to go up around the pole/post.

Thanks so much for the advice on attracting the varieties of birds! We did see a snake on our property a while back while clearing brush in the back. It was non poisonous but I see your point in putting the baffle in to protect the birds. I love bluebirds and it would be awesome to attract some owls!
Thanks so much for all your great suggestions!
