Carolina Wren

 

 

 Construct the Carolina Wren nest box with rough-cut wood on both sides so birds can grip interior and exterior surfaces.

The design has a 4" by 4" floor (inside dimensions), 8" floor to ceiling (inside front), 1 1/2" diameter entrance hole located 6" above the floor (to top of hole) and ventilation openings in the floor and under the roof.

A hinged roof provides easy access for monitoring and cleaning.   Shutter hooks secure roof in closed position.  Pilot holes in both primary and secondary work pieces makes for easy assembly with a screwdriver in minutes.

Mount on a tree, post, fence or wall between four and twelve feet high with partial sun and shade (see the Carolina Wren bird species page for specific habitat and mounting instuctions.)

Remove the nest in late summer or fall after the brood rearing seasons are over.

See assembly instructions and complete plans below.

 
Chickadees, Nuthatches, Titmice, Wrens, Tree and Violet Green Swallows (and sparrows) may use this nest box.
