Our Wooden Sparrow Nest Box has an entrance hole size of 32mm making it ideal for House sparrows. Other species of garden bird which might use the sparrow box include Great tit and Nuthatch.
As House sparrows like to nest in small colonies, it really helps them if there’s a line of House sparrow nest boxes set quite close together. The nest boxes need to ideally be facing east or north east so they don’t get the full midday sun, as this will mean the young birds inside will get too hot which could kill them. Sparrow bird boxes should be positioned at least 2 metres from the ground, with a house wall or tall fence being suitable. Mature trees can also be used.
As an alternative to buying multiple sparrow nest boxes for a small colony, one or two house sparrow terrace nest boxes will do the same job.
