Boxes by visually impaired.
Henshaws' Arts and Crafts Centre at Knaresborough is exhibiting the collection, handmade by its own visually impaired art makers.
The exhibition shows a range of themes and styles, including homes for blue and great tits, flycatchers, sparrow terraces and towers, as well as homes for hedgehogs and bugs.
The boxes are made from reclaimed timber, including oak, hazel and bamboo coppiced from the centre's garden.
Art maker David Deakin said: "Sometimes the bird boxes can be very complicated to make. I especially like the way we make sure we are using recycled materials from our own gardens and I really enjoy painting them."
Visitors will be able to see the skills art makers need to work in the woodwork production unit.
The free exhibition is on until February 24.
