That Nest in Birdhouses

Dimension tolerance on a birdhouse, which needs ventilation, is not very critical. Minor measuring or cutting mistakes, gaps, etc. are not always a problem.

Be precise where panels are joined at right angles (90º), the four sides and the floor, where precision is easiest to accomplish. A good fit and fastening there will make for a very sturdy box.

 

Build nest boxes according to species dimensions provided by USGS and USFWS: 1. floor, 2. inside front floor to ceiling, 3. inside floor to top of hole, 4. hole diameter.

Nest boxes made according to those four species-specific dimensions and placed in the right location will attract the intended bird species and possibly additional bird species.

 

Print plans and dimensions or just view them on a phone in your work space.

 

Find free wood pieces at fence and home construction sites. The small sizes usually needed for bird houses are often trash for others.

 

The familiar “nest box” design on these pages follow U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recommended species-specific dimensions that simulate tree cavities in which individual species commonly occupy.
