Best way to get Birds to use Birdhouse?

Is it helpful to have some kind of bedding in the birdhouse, or should I have nothing in there? If so, what kind?

I placed the see through plastic right on the bird house instead of on my window will it still work or do I need a new piece of plastic?

It Just Takes Time

I bought mine 5 years ago. I haven't had a single bird in it the whole time. I just forgot about it until just a couple weeks ago, when I noticed a daddy Bluebird hanging out on the clothesline pole. I looked out into the birdhouse and there was mama Bluebird building a nest. They now have 5 eggs in there! Very excited to watch them hatch and grow.

Why Instructions Say no Later than March?

This is a comment, not a review as I have not yet tried i. I bought it in mid-May, recently. But the instructions would have me set it up no later than March. Why?

Better Way

I love this product. There are issues sometimes with the birdhouse falling if the suction cups fail. After you place the birdhouse on your window, run a piece of packaging tape from the window on one side, around the birdhouse, and down the other side and attach to other side of the window. Your birdhouse will never fall and will last thru several seasons. Enjoy: ).

Does This Work on First Floor Windows?

Love this but I live in a one floor unit. Does it have to be high up? Wish it had a hook and chain. Does it fall off the window easily? I live in CA so dry, warm weather.

No Controlling Nature

I can't fault the company for Mother Nature's tricks, but we did not get what we expected. Instead of a family of birds, a wasp's nest moved into our birdhouse. I think they are Yellowjackets or paper wasps. I can't tell. Now I have to climb out onto the roof and spray Raid into the birdhouse. If they were bees I would leave them alone, but Yellowjackets are aggressive.

Birds Have Moved In

I like this product. Picked it up at Walmart on a whim and hung it up. It took 2 seasons for it to lose human smell and become part of the landscape. I have a beautiful robin sitting on eggs this year. Only hiccup is it's hard to see through the mylar shield. But i'm just happy to have a new occupant 😀 Give it time and keep the shade down. They will move in eventually.

Does Not Attract Birds

Mine has been up for 2 years and nothing. Last year I left it to its own defenses. This year I tried to jump start it with bird food and straw ( dried grass ) to no avail. It's hard to explain to your youngster why no birds will come. No I do not recommend it.

How do you get the Birds to Come Into the House?

I set mine up a month ago but haven't gotten any birds yet. I bought it in the store so that part was fine. I just don't have any birds yet.

Causes Stress and Harm

Who ever made this was asking for more trouble. Not only the material is so very poorly made, but why would they even think it would hold with 3 suckers to a window? Hopefully this brings more joy and positive to the bird nature, but it will also bring harm! Just like zoo, being watched by humans ( even without window tapping by a small child ) causes them plenty of stress!

You have a good point; however, if you watch the video, it clearly states that it comes with a 2 way mirror. This means you can see in, but birds can't see you. Thus the argument of causing the birds stress doesn't apply. Secondly, they are not trapped like in a zoo. If they were stressed then they are free to leave.

Can the 2way mirror film be applies to the clear wall of the birdhouse so it can be placed free standing/mounted near the house as we do not have a good window ...?

Myspy Birdhouse

Terrible product Total Scam! Got a phone call the next morning after placing my order attempting to scam me some more. Then when I got the product in the mail they did not give me the free feeder that i was supposed to receive. The boxes that I did get were really crappy plastic that was warped. Looked nothing like the video. Totally ripped off and not happy. I thought these houses were wood. Do Not bUY! This does not even deserve a smidgen of a star rating. They just made me click that to post.

BUILD YOUR OWN!

After reading the bad reviews, I decided to build my own for my grandson. I used 1/4" solid birch and a rubberized sprayed roof covered mintiture cedar shakes for looks. Plexiglass back with large suction cups. IT WORKS AND LOOKS GREAT! I did spent more than 8hrs total building it though!

This is an add on to my last comment. My credit card has now been charged for 2 birdhouses. I complained to the company about solitation phone call after ordering and saying "Can I charge this to your credit card ending in ****" They said this was not them but a third party who they are giving your information out to. They are not accredited to the BBB. Beware of this company and giving your personal information and credit card info out to.

Terrible Customer Service

I received a letter in the mail stating that my credit card did not go through and the order was cancelled. I reviewed the order on their website and it was indeed cancelled. I reordered using a different credit card and ended up receiving 2 My Spy Birdhouses and were charged for both. When I contacted customer service, they told me to return the product and they would credit my account; however, I would have to pay the return shipping ($8.00). Basically blamed me for reordering (even though it showed the previous order was cancelled) and the credit card company for allowing the transaction to go through.

Bird House Safety

I am considering purchasing one, may wait to see if they make to Amazon or even build my own, however my advise to people is to finda a way to secure the house put a safety chain above it to catch is cups let go or even anchor a long shelf across window and fasten it to house on each side of window for birdhouse to set on. I would not intrude on the lil birds privacy but since there is a two way mirror I feel it is an excellent way to experience nature. thanks

Leave Nature Alone

People should leave nature alone. There is a reason why birds make their nest away from people and animals. I think it could be very disturbing for a bird to see people faces or a cat or dog face right next to them... This invention is just people trying to make money whitout considering the animals wellbeing.

I just want to point out that the birds cannot see that you are watching them. The see-through panel works like a two way mirror. We can see them but they cannot see us. The only concern I would have is how reliable the suction cups would be. I know some people have had great luck with this, but I would never feel comfortable with it. It only needs to fall one time...

I totally disagree about birds building nest FAR away from people. My daughter has gotten to see first hand the wonder of birds laying eggs and babies hatching. A house wren nests every year on our front porch in the corner by a pillar. Last year a Mockingbird built a nest in a small everygreen that sat right beside our front porch. So, no. Birds do not necessarily build FAR away from humans.

People only want to save what they love, and you cannot love what you do not know. So teaching your children to know and love nature can only help conservation efforts in general. If we keep our distance from nature and feel disconnected from it, then we will continue to abuse and destroy it.

Birdhouse Suction Cups

How many times have we tried to put up anything hanging on a window with those suction cups. They never stay for long, and I would hate to see newborn birds become cat food because the suction cups failed.

Even if it did fall, there is protective plastic on the window-side of the birdhouse so they would still be protected and not become cat food....

Warning! DO NOT BUY!

This company should not get a dime of your money. A few days after my online order, I received a call from them soliciting me to buy the other products they offer. I declined. A few days later, I received a letter in the mail stating that my credit card did not go through. I called and after waiting on hold 10 minutes, got an extremely rude agent to actually disconnected my call when I asked to speak to a manager. Now my son will not get the gift he wants in time for Christmas.

My Spy Birdhouse

I was incredulous about all of the bad reviews until I was about 72 hours into the ordering process. They still did not find my online order in their database. On Day 1 they did not give an immediate on screen acknowledgment of receipt of my order. On Day 2 the CS rep told me the company line about waiting 48 hours for them to log my order. I asked about the negative reviews by other customers. He told me they were having start-up company problems but the problems have all been resolved now. On Day 3 finally I checked the status of my order and did not see it. So I called and got the same CS rep. He could not locate my order and it was then 72 hours later. Obviously the 12-11-2013 deadline he quoted to ensure delivery by 12-24-2013 could not be met. Furthermore he offered to take my order over the phone but guaranteed delivery by 12-24-2013 could not be had without paying the required 19.95 additional shipping cost. I am convinced that this operation is either one of the worst internet businesses or one of the best scammers.

It did take a good 2 months for ours to arrive as well and we did receive a card in the mail saying it would also be a delay and if we wanted to cancel, send the card back. We did wait it out and it did come. We put it up and a week later we have 2 eggs in the birdhouse. I was surprised because we suctioned it on our patio in full view of our 2 kittens. We had very bad weather the other day and it stayed suctioned in terrible weather! Very happy and excited to watch the 2 baby birds hatch!

I ordered it April 13th. It nevered arrived. The site went missing. Finally today, June 3rd, I get a letter saying it's going to be here on the 19th. Sixteen dollar shipping and handling(ridiculous)and it takes two plus months to arrive (psychotically ridiculous.) That is to say if it arrives at all.
