Width & Length:
- Near homes, Carolina Wrens are versatile nesters, making use of flowerpots, mailboxes, propane-tank covers, and a variety of other items. Their nests have even been found in old coat pockets and boots. Nesting boxes offer wrens a more convenient (for you) place to put their nest, and can be placed so that they are safer from predators.
- Carolina Wrens may also use nest boxes put out for other species, but this design is a "pseudocavity" which appeals to their tendency to select partially-enclosed areas.
- Nest boxes may also be used for winter roosting and should therefore be left up during winter in colder climates.
