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
- Large variety including 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 new baby mamas arrive.
Protect Your Bird Box Entrance
This protective steel plate provides a strong seal around the entrance to prevent predators, such as woodpeckers, from gaining entrance and harming the nesting birds.
Choose Which Birds Occupy Your Bird Box
These plates are now available with entrance holes 25mm, 28mm, and 32mm in diameter. You can choose your preferred size from the drop-down menu above.
Strong Build Quality
Made from stainless steel, these plates are guaranteed years of use.
