Free Brid House Plans Needed

The carpentry instructor at our school has been asked to make some bird houses. It occurred to me to ask here about free bird house plans since (as in most schools) there is no budget for such things.
Any leads will be most appreciated.

Darn. The spell checker checks the body of the message but not the Subject. Of course I am looking for BIRD house plans.

He might find at least three of my books there, possibly four, with Dover just bringing one out a few months ago.

Try the local library. Ours has quite a few including Charlie Self's, one of the posters to this news group.

When I wanted to build a couple of bird houses out of a load of old cedar boards lying about, I went to Wal-Mart and bought three or four. Then, I took them home and photographed and measured each, making drawings as I went.
Then, I took the houses back to Wal-Mart and built my own versions.
I would think this would be a good exercise for woodworking shop - might even tie it it with the drafting classes. And, if you want to really expand the project, get the Art teachers involved.
When I was in High School, I took Drafting, Metal Shop, Wood Shop and Print Shop as well as Art Classes. I recall creating a statue in Metal Shop, printing a fancy label thingy in Print Shop and entering the thing in the Art Show & Sale with a price of (what I thought at the time - 1960's) was exorbidant - %75.
The damned thing was the third item sold!
I also recall printing up membership cards for some art students at Northwood High for something they called the Davala Hates Me Club. It seems Mrs (or Miss) Davala, their Art teacher was driving them crazy drawing and painting Bamboo. So they wanted an appropriate card.
They gave me a couple of sketches of the bamboo and I created a linoleum block print of a stalk of bamboo. When I "proofed" it using black ink, I didn't clean iyt upp sufficiently. When I chucked the whole thing up in the Candler & Price with the Chromium Yellow Ink, it picked up a bit of the black residue along the left side of the image and bled just enough to make the thing look like a four color process as the green edges blended into the yellow body of the stalk.
They were some kool membership cards.

Thanks to all who responded. I had done a Google search of course but when I say the vast number of hits I figured I would ask here to narrow the field. Should have said that up front.
I will pass the information along to the carpentry insturctor and he can take it from there.
Thanks again,
