House Wren (Troglodytes aedon)

Why do we want wrens? These songbirds are a natural pest control, because wrens can eat 40 grams of insects a day when they're nesting! The hexagonal birdhouse uses a 1⅛" hole to attract wrens, chickadees, titmice and nuthatches. An interior volume of ~800 cm3 makes this house the ideal size for attracting these native birds to your yard.

Easy to Clean

With the effortless mounting bracket system it is possible to clean your birdhouse in under a minute.  Birds prefer finding an empty cavity where they can bring their own fresh nesting material.  If your birdhouse is cleaned promptly after the fledglings have left, you can have up to three fledges of young - per year!

Simple Installation

This mounting bracket system makes putting up the birdhouse easy.  Fasten the bracket 1.5-3.7 m high on a post, tree or building facing east, south or west.  Once the bracket is secure, simply slide the birdhouse into place!  Watching your feathered friends during breakfast or morning coffee is a fun way to start the day!

Non-toxic Preservative

Birds prefer houses that have little to no scent, and all birdhouses should be coated with an environmentally friendly preservative. Our birdhouses are coated with a waterproof and non-toxic polyurethane from Vermont Natural Coatings. Many birdhouses require a year to outgas, but our birdhouses are safe for birds the day they are finished. After a few years, birdhouses can be recoated with a non-toxic urethane, or left alone as birds can prefer a weathered look.

Built To Last

Handcrafted with attention to detail, these birdhouse follow the hexagonal design which has been tested for over 40 years by the Cranmer family. Every component of the birdhouse that is nailed is also glued for extra durability. The bottom board contains drainage holes which allow moisture to flow out keeping the birds dry. And best of all, this birdhouse is entirely made in Canada.
