The Chickadee Nest Box by Droll Yankees can also be used for Titmouses and as a Wren Nest Box. It is designed with all the right features for cavity nesting birds.
It has an exaggerated roof overhang which keeps rain and sun out, keeping eggs and birds dry and temperatures stable on the inside. Its unique entry hole replicates a natural tree cavity.
Side door - easy access for monitoring and cleaning
Ventilation - under eaves and in the floor, for proper air flow
Kerfs on inside front - help fledglings climb out of the box
Predator guard - increase depth of entry (Not pictured)
Correct wood thickness - insulates against heat and cold
Our nest boxes are made of pine, a resource that renews itself rapidly so that habitats are quickly restored
Can be painted or stained and coordinates with artwork
Height - 10 in., hole size 1 1/4 in. x 1 3/4 in.
