Description

  • INCLUDES 2 PREDATOR GUARDS TO ADJUST HOLE OPENING SIZE: Birds can be extremely picky about the size of the hole and type of house that they’ll nest in. This birdhouse comes with 2 different-sized, interchangeable predator guards that can be attached to the house to attract different species of birds. The standard hole size is 1.5”. The predator guards come in 1.25” inch and 1 1/8” sizes. You can easily change the predator guard each season to attract different birds each year
 
  • ATTRACT DIFFERENT SPECIES OF BIRDS: Standard 1.5” hole attracts finches, bluebirds, tree swallows, violet-green swallows, house sparrows, flicker woodpeckers, hairy woodpeckers, and yellow-bellied sapsuckers. 1.25” hole attracts titmice, nuthatches, downy woodpeckers, warblers and Bewick’s wrens. 1 1/8” hole attracts house wrens and chickadees
 
  • SHELTER FROM THE ELEMENTS: Cedar wood house provides protection against different kinds of weather, which is key to the survival of young fledglings. Cedar wood is especially strong and weather-resistant, making it perfect for outdoor use. This birdhouse is designed to keep rain and wind out of the house, and provides ample space for birds to rest safely and soundly from the dog days of summer, the freezing cold of winter, and everything in between
 
  • EASY MAINTENANCE/CLEANING: Purposefully designed for easy cleaning, the bottom perch of this birdhouse slides out for easy seasonal cleaning after each bird family leaves their nests. The houses’ sturdy, sloped frame minimizes cleaning time and ensures your birdhouse will be in tip-top shape for a new family to move in. We recommend cleaning the birdhouse out after each season, especially if you will be trying to attract a different species of bird the following season
 
  • QUICKLY ATTRACT NEW BIRDS WITH OUR WAKEFIELD PEANUTS: Not only do we make bird houses, but we carry the most popular peanuts for wildlife. They provide a high-energy, healthy food source that practically guarantee your birdhouse will be occupied before you know it!

The Wakefield Way

Health, Wealth and Happiness for All Wildlife

The Wakefield Way is a guiding principle that we incorporate in everything we do. From farming Virginia peanuts in the fields to handcrafting premium birdhouses in the shop, we focus on maximizing the health, wealth, and happiness of our backyard friends.

We've built lasting relationships with local Virginia farmers and suppliers to spread awareness of these principles and promote a better quality of life for animals across the country.

  • Health - We proactively work to promote better health by improving our products and spreading awareness. Our peanuts are high in protein and our birdhouses provide insulation and protection.
  • Wealth - This principle focuses on abundance and need. While birds are capable of fending for themselves, we believe in providing necessities such as food and shelter when they are otherwise scarce.
  • Happiness - Enjoy watching as new birds flock to your yard each morning for some peanuts, and enjoy seeing new families move in to your Wakefield birdhouse each season.
 

Attract a Wide Variety of Birds!

Warblers are beautiful, colorful birds that use Wakefield birdhouses to protect their nestlings.

Bluebirds put their nests in natural cavities or in nest boxes such as a Wakefield Birdhouse

Wren

Bubbly and energetic, wrens are known for their beautiful song voices and distinct flat heads and long beaks.

Wrens will commonly nest in birdhouses that sway in the wind, and their preferred hole opening size is 1 1/8 inches.

Chickadee

Undeniably curious, chickadees have a habit of investigating new areas and people. They are quick to discover new feeders and houses, making them an extremely common bird to find in your birdhouse.

Their preferred hole opening size is 1 1/8 inches.

Warbler

Often found foraging for insects amongst small branches and shrubs, Warblers are beautiful birds that typically stay low to the ground, usually feeding at heights below 10 feet.

Because of this, if trying to attract a Warbler, you'll want to hang your birdhouse around 10 feet off the ground. Their preferred hole opening size is 1 1/4 inches.

Bluebird

Bluebirds are common cavity nesters and will often select sites such as an old woodpecker hole to build their nests.

Older bluebirds will often prefer a nest box over a tree cavity, such as the birdhouses we offer. Their preferred hole opening size is 1 1/2 inches.

 
House Wrens are commonly attracted to swaying birdhouses.

How to Quickly Attract Birds to your Birdhouse

It's one thing to own a birdhouse, but attracting them is a different story. Here are some tips for attracting birds to your Wakefield birdhouse:

 

  • Picking a good nesting location is a must - Both bird types seek out the shade and protection of thick bushes or small trees when looking for a home. We recommend nailing or screwing your Wakefield birdhouse 5 to 10 feet from the ground.
  • Face it away from harsh weather - Make sure the entrance hole faces away from prevailing winds that normally come from the east and west. The safer the home, the more likely a bird family will move in!
  • Layout the welcome mat - Make your birdhouse stand out for possible residents. Attract them with a free buffet of their favorite foods such as peanut butter, suet, sunflower seed, or even our own Wakefield Virginia Peanuts!

Mounting, Hanging and Cleaning Your New Wakefield Birdhouse

Mounting and Hanging

Purposefully designed for easy hanging, this birdhouse features two pre-drilled holes in the bottom post that can be easily screwed or nailed into any tree, deck, or fence. The proper height to hang the house at will vary by the type of bird you are trying to attract. Please see our chart in the image section above for more detail.

Seasonal Cleaning

Supplies: rubber gloves, birdhouse cleaner or bleach solution, old toothbrush.

A removable perch at the bottom of this birdhouse makes cleaning a breeze. Slide it out for easy access to the inside of the house. First, remove all remaining nesting material from the house. Mix your birdhouse cleaner with water following the instructions, or mix 9 parts water with 1 part bleach to create your own solution. Then scrub the inside walls of the birdhouse using the toothbrush and solution.

We recommend doing this after each season, especially if you will be trying to attract a different species of bird the following season.

Made in the USA

Birdhouses are the perfect gift to accentuate your patio, lawn, garden, deck, and home. Wakefield premium birdhouses are hand-crafted in the USA and made from a light-colored cedar wood. Cedar wood is an ideal material for birdhouses because it is weather-resistant, allowing for outside use all year long. The light-colored wood provides insulation to keep baby birds cool in the summertime and reduces the risk of overheating in the nest.

The Wakefield Hanging Bird House provides protection from the cold and elements for most common backyard birds including wrens, chickadees, nuthatches, and titmice. Its enclosed design provides protection against predators, heavy rain and harsh snow.

The front hole is 1.5 inches wide and features a perch for small birds to comfortably stand and clean their beaks. Two different-sized predator-guards are included, which provide the birds with additional protection from predators such as squirrels and larger birds, as well as enables you to change the hole opening size of the bird house, which can vary depending on the type of bird you are trying to attract.

What types of birds does each hole size attract?

  • 1 1/2" hole - Finch, Bluebird, Tree Swallow, House sparrow, Flicker Woodpecker, Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers, Violet-Green Swallows, Hairy Woodpeckers
  • 1 1/4" Predator Guard - Titmice, Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker, Warblers, Bewick’s Wren
  • 1 1/8" Predator Guard - House Wren, Chickadee

How to Mount or Hang:

Simply tie a rope or string through the metal hook at the top of the birdhouse to hang from a tree branch.

How to clean your Wakefield Birdhouse:

The bottom perch slides out for easy cleaning after the birds have moved out for the season. Remove all nesting material and scrape off any remaining organic matter with an old toothbrush. We recommend cleaning the birdhouse after each season to promote good health for new birds moving in.
