  5. 13. Project: Tit boxes

Every spring there was a very strange phenomenon. In the morning when the sun came up and shine on the house wall, there was a chirp and peck coming from my roller shutter housing. I thought the hang on the house wall and picking insects. But no, they wanted to make a nest in there. They also tried it at the neighbors but in both cases they failed.

For that reason I decided to make two tit boxes to hang one in a tree in the front of the house and one at the back.

Both are made of a construction manual (German) of the »Naturschutzbund« (NABU, Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union).

I modified both a bit and add a small bar underneath the hole so the tits can sit there. On the first attempt the bar was to high but no problem for the tits. The box was taken very soon after mounting. 🙂

The material is simply glue wood planks. I think it’s spruce wood. I just cut them and gave it a linseed oil finish at the end.
