Bird Box Stainless Steel Cover Plate


Product Code: BBPLATE25

Want to make sure you attract a certain bird to your nest box? Besides taking measures like hanging the box in a south-facing position and at the right height, it’s also important to consider the size of the house’s entrance hole; it plays a huge part in a bird’s decision to make a home there or not. We can categorise different birds of a feather, each group with a specific preference for their own little hobbit door size:

  • Small birds such as blue, coal, and marsh tits: 25mm
  • Great tits and tree sparrows: 28mm
  • Larger birds inc house sparrows, nuthatches and woodpeckers: 32mm

If you have your heart set on housing and protecting a specific feathered family, order the matching entrance plate now, so the home is ready to go before the chicks arrive.
