Those of us interested in wildlife can help avoid conflicts, which always end up with the moose or bears as the losers. To protect wildlife and keep problems from arising, either locate feeders out of reach of moose and bears, or put up feeders after bears are hibernating (Nov. 1) and take them down before bears begin to wake up in spring (mid_March). Don't feed birds in any way that will harm them. Keep feeders clean, and clean up the area on the ground around feeders that may attract other wildlife species to feeders.
Position the house so its opening does not face into direct sunlight or prevailing winds. Full or partial shade will help keep the house cooler, and a more protected location will be safer. If necessary, a longer overhang above the entrance can also help provide shade and shelter. Angle the house so rain cannot easily run into the opening or through ventilation holes. Some bird house models include an angled face to ease water runoff, and a larger roof overhang can also help keep the interior of the house dry. The house could also be positioned in a more sheltered area, such as underneath the eaves of a roof or against the trunk of a large, full tree that will help protect the bird house.
