You may prefer Side Opening Doors instead of hinged roof doors, especially for the larger nest boxes.

 

Wear Eye Protection!

Eye injuries are the most common serious injury and the most easily prevented.

 

3/4″ wood stock is the most common. 5/8″ stock where called for can be supplied with fencing material from most lumberyards. 5/8″ stock is used on the smaller nest boxes because 3/4″ stock is too thick and makes them look odd.

 

You shouldn’t have to pay for any wood if you keep your eyes peeled. Watch for wood scrap piles at fence and home construction sites. These are good sources for the small sizes usually needed for bird houses.

5 bird houses for 4 wren species, brown creepers and prothonotary warblers.

See the wren nest box page, instructions and building plans
Wren Nest Box
Make this nest box for house wrens, winter wrens, Bewick’s wrens, brown creepers and possibly some of the chickadees and nuthatches. See the nest box page, building and mounting instructions and view or print nest box plans.
 
See the Carolina wren nest box page, instructions and building plans

Prothonotary Warbler Nest Box
Prothonotary Warbler Nest Box
