Small Lid Birdhouses
A smaller version of our Large Lid model, this sweet little house has a 1 1/8" entry and 4" diameter interior space that are just right for the smaller birds like wrens and chickadees. The round shape mimics a hollow tree cavity where these birds prefer to nest. It's made of salvaged Western Red cedar; an old pan lid serves as the roof. (A ¾" wood liner under the lid protects the nesting area from any heat buildup.) Lighting fixture parts add decorative accents to the roof and/or house body.
