Enjoy the cheery songs of a variety of beautiful songbirds by adding chickadee bird houses to your backyard habitat. Create the best home environment for your backyard buddies by providing a warm, dry and safe place for smaller birds to nest and roost. Chickadee bird houses are designed with a 1-1/4 inch hole keeping them safe from larger birds and predators. They should be around 8” tall and have a 5”x5” base. Chickadees love a wooded yard, mount your chickadee house in a tree on the edge of a forest, or near a thicket or shrubs.
