Chickadee House


Geff made his mom a chickadee birdhouse for Christmas.  He makes all kinds of birdhouses according to the species he is trying to attract. 

If  you are interesting in making birdhouses, the Audubon Birdhouse book is an excellent resource.

He adds pennies to the entrance to discourage other birds/animals from disturbing it.  Seems to work well and it’s cute too.

Here’s some baby chickadees in the same house design last spring. 

 Birdhouses Featuring:
 - Nail-free roof design
 - Penny Guard© woodpecker entrance protection
  - Interior ladder with triple rung top step
  - Cozy interior molding to mimic natural nesting cavity
  - Smart phone monitoring vent
  - EZ-Mount© installation system
  - Stylish bead board siding
  - Constructed with weatherproof screws, counter sunk to be flush with the surface
 - Interior filled with wood chips that must be removed by occupants before nest construction - gives them a feeling "they built it"
