Birdhouses are the perfect gift to accentuate your patio, lawn, garden, deck, and home. Wakefield premium birdhouses are hand-crafted in the USA and made from a light-colored cedar wood. Cedar wood is an ideal material for birdhouses because it is weather-resistant, allowing for outside use all year long. The light-colored wood provides insulation to keep baby birds cool in the summertime and reduces the risk of overheating in the nest.
The Wakefield Boxed Bird House provides protection from the cold and elements for most common backyard birds including wrens, chickadees, nuthatches, and titmice. Its enclosed design provides protection against predators, heavy rain and harsh snow.
The front hole of this birdhouse measures 1.5 inches wide. Two different-sized predator-guards are included, which provide the birds with additional protection from predators such as squirrels and larger birds, as well as enable you to change the hole opening size of the bird house, which can vary depending on the type of bird you are trying to attract.
What types of birds does each hole size attract?
- 1 1/2" hole - Finch, Bluebird, Tree Swallow, House sparrow, Flicker Woodpecker, Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers, Violet-Green Swallows, Hairy Woodpeckers
- 1 1/4" Predator Guard - Titmice, Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker, Warblers, Bewick’s Wren
- 1 1/8" Predator Guard - House Wren, Chickadee
How to Mount or Hang:
Simply tie a rope or string through the metal hook at the top of the birdhouse to hang from a tree branch. The two screws on the sides are used to tighten and loosen the swinging door.
How to clean your Wakefield Birdhouse:
Loosen the screws on each side of the birdhouse to tilt the front door. Remove all nesting material and scrape off any remaining organic matter with an old toothbrush. We recommend cleaning the birdhouse after each season to promote good health for new birds moving in.
