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 north-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.

Green Feathers nest box

excellent, the quality is superb, it was easy to hang, everything you need is supplied and the ultimate compliment is blue tits have moved in to my safe secure nest box!

They do the job....

Easy to fit and they do the job. I wish they weren't quite such a bright, shiny stainless steel as I think they make the lovely nest box look a bit garish. Maybe that'll help attract birds? Just hope it doesn't put them off!


Green Feathers

Hi Martin, thank you for your feedback. Hopefully over time with a bit of weathering and British weather thrown at it, it won't look too garish in the long run.

Cover plates

Great overall experience and good quality product apart from one of the plates which only had three holes pre-drilled.

Cover plate

Needed a smaller hole on the bird box to keep the sparrows away from the blue tits. This looks the business and delivery was very quick
