Phoebe & Flycatcher Birdhouse Plans

Two birdhouse plans for great-crested and ash-throated flycatchers, four platform shelter plans for eastern and Say’s phoebes and two sheltered ledge plans that may attract black phoebes.

Ash-throated Flycatcher Birdhouse Plans
Ash-throated Flycatcher Nest Box Plans
Mount on a tree or post in a secluded area in woodlands between four and ten feet high. Chickadees, Nuthatches, Titmice, Wrens, Tree and Violet Green Swallows (and sparrows!) may also use this nest box.
Great-crested Flycatcher Birdhouse Plans
Great-crested Flycatcher Nest Box Plans
Mount on a tree or post in a secluded area in woodlands between six and ten feet high with partial sun and shade. Woodpeckers and other birds including sparrows might nest in this box.
Phoebe Platform Shelter Plans
Phoebe Platform Shelter Plans
Do not mount in a tree. Make sure objects that cats and squirrels can climb do not provide access to the nest. The purpose of a platform is to simulate an isolated wall face below a cliff edge.
Open Nesting Platform Plans
Open Nesting Platform Plans
The open nesting platform can be used under porches, eaves and other open shelters. It’s possible any of the platform nesters could use this platform, depending where it’s mounted and each individual species inclination.
Mourning Dove Platform Shelter Plans

This platform is named for the largest of the desired backyard platform nesters (unless you include pigeons), but really any of the platform nesting birds including eastern and Say’s phoebes might claim it.
Robin Nesting Shelter Plans

The robin shelter is also suitable for eastern and Say’s phoebes as well as most backyard platform nesters. And you might attract an American robin, one of the most easily attracted backyard birds.

Black Phoebe Shelter Plans
Black Phoebe, Swallow Shelter Plans
Black phoebes and barn and cliff swallows build mud nests on shear vertical faces under various objects that provide overhead shelter. There are cases where they have been attracted to shelters made specially for them when no others exist nearby.
One shelter has a 2″ by 8″ ledge, approximately a 8″ high gable roof, an open front and partially open sides. Another has a 2″ by 6″ ledge, approximately a 6″ ceiling, an open front and partially open sides.
Usually there is no need for these designs. Their nests adhere securely to vertical faces and they’re quite particular about their nesting places. Nevertheless, even if the shelters don’t attract birds, they make cute ornaments.
