House Wrens occupy the northern
two-thirds of the United States and parts
of Canada. They breed in forest edges,
shrub lands, swamps, fields, farmlands
and suburban parks. Most birds prefer a
stable house, but House Wrens don't mind
a gentle movement. Our Hanging Wren House
hangs easily with the metal chain from a
tree or bracket and opens easily for
clean-out. Wrens are notorious for
filling up any conceivable nest cavity
with twigs, regardless of whether they
use the nest. Since male House Wrens
build several nests for the female to
choose from, hang several nest boxes at
eye level on partly sunlit tree limbs.
Wrens are sociable and will accept nest
boxes quite close to your house.
House Wren nest boxes should be hung 5 to
10 feet high near trees or tall shrubs.
Breeding season begins in late April for
wrens living in the southern portion of
their range and early May in the northern
