3. GET THE RIGHT HOLE SIZE

Garden Answers (UK) - - Wildlife -

Too large a hole and a small bird will fear that a larger bird could come along and boot it out. Blue tits like a hole of 25mm across; great tits pre­fer 28mm, house spar­rows need 32mm, and for star­lings it’s a whop­ping 45mm. Robins and wrens pre­fer open-fronted boxes, but wrens some­times use tit boxes.
