I have read guide but this is all it says....read below.
My question do the other types of birdhouses other then one's listed below do anything else?
Exsample
silver birch,  and other lower level birdhouses?
Is there anything else that is missing that isn't included about birdhouses and birds that someone can enlighten me and other new players about that isn't included in guide?
From guide
Birdhouse:

    An item which can be whittled. Place one on a tree to attract a bird or a squirrel - the animal attracted depends on the type of tree to which the birdhouse is attached. The higher the level of your birdhouse, the sooner you can expect to attract a bird or squirrel. If a bird or squirrel is attracted, you can use it as many times as computed in the formula random(1, Treeyears/10) * random(1, BHLevel). After that the birdhouse is destroyed and the bird or squirrel leaves. To remove a birdhouse, it must first be empty. Then select your axe and click the tree.

Birds:

    Birds can be attracted to trees by placing a birdhouse on the tree. Different types of tree attract different birds.

        * Yellow Buckeye - Yellow-Bellied Sap-Sucker
        * Quaking Aspen - Sharpie
        * Black Tupelo - Wood Duck
        * Western Hemlock - Bearded Vulture
        * Horse Chestnut - Passenger Pigeon

    Each bird has a certain number of uses, the maximum number of uses is dependent on the tree age and the level of the birdhouse. random(1, Treeyears/10) * random(1, BHLevel). Once all the uses are used up, the birdhouse will be destroyed.

    To use a bird, summon it with a compost worm. Select the compost worm in your hoard and click on the bird. The bird will then appear in your hoard. You cannot use other people's birds.

    You can scare away a bird by feeding it a piece of poo - but only if it is your own bird. You van scare other people's birds away with special poo, Blitzen Poo. This was a 2003 christmas and is very rare.

There is nothing new unless you are a member.

If you are a member you can scare away bird uses with Sour Wiggleberries from strawberry crops.

It's nice that you can quote the guide, at least you have LOOKED at it.  It is the TREE that attracts those birds, not the birdhouse.  The level of the birdhouse (BHlevel) helps determine (along with age of the tree) determines how many USES you get out of the birds attracted to the tree.

It also helps to determine how long it will take for a bird to nest there. You can't forget that.

True, but his post made it sound like you had to have a Black Tupelo birdhouse to attract a wood duck, not a black tupelo tree.

I was just quoting what was put in guide and trying to get clarification of this for myself and other new players, also I am helping work on guide for Abby and new playes that can be easily understood by all.
So For exsample if I have Black Tupelo tree do I need black tupelo tree and bird house or just any high level birdhouse with black tupelo tree?

I updated the guide a little while back.
Search for a topic with ToadRAD in it, or go to my website.

Any level tree can be used to make birdhouses to attract bird to trees.

e.g. I widely use Willow birdhouses when I do mass plantings along new fences for BVs.  It just takes longer with lower level birdhouses.
