Question From: R. SVOBODA - Clarksville, Michigan, United States
Q: I would like to purchase a winter roosting box. I live in Western Michigan and we can get very cold temperatures. My question is this: Will different species of birds share the same roosting box at the same time? Also, I have a yard full of sparrows and they have been taking over everything. I am concerned that the sparrows will take over the roost box, so I would like to know if the cardinals, nuthatches and finches will be prevented from using it.
Rhonda, I am not a bird specialist and cannot answer those very interesting questions. I suggest you contact folks at stores that specialize in birding, such as wild birds unlimited. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
