|Thank you both for reading, it seems like this may be a well read article, even though the topic seems a bit unusual.
Locating and positioning your birdhouse depends on what type of bird you want, how warm or cold it is, time of year, and other factors. As an example, bluebirds prefer an open area in front of their house, as they search for insects in clearings, and can easily fly in and out. They also like perches nearby, so they can keep watch. In the spring, or anytime of the year in cooler areas, having the house where it will get morning sun to warm in up in the morning is preferable. As it gets hotter, shade, especially in the afternoon, is essential to prevent cooked eggs and babies.
So, if you need to face the house north so it is facing an open area, that is more important than facing it east. If you have the place for it, face it east, where it gets morning sun and afternoon shade, towards an open area, with perches not too far away. In my yard, I can do this, as I have lots of large trees around the small open yard/garden area. I have also place birdhouses all over the place, so I get different types of birds, and they can all choose what they like the most.
Let me know how your bird raising goes. It can be quite fun.
