Can It

This galvanized aluminum model is placed in a shady spot and features a steeply pitched roof to shed water and discourage mammals. Except for aluminum, metal should be avoided for the body of your birdhouse. Metal turns a birdhouse into a little oven in the sun, and it offers no insulation in cold weather. Also, reflective metal can attract predators.
