I have chickadees, nuthatches and titmouse birds as regulars at my feeders and with the harsh weather up here in NY, I hope to have a roosting box up by the end of the week. I was reading that these different species often travel in a group and was wondering if they will share a roosting box or if each species requires a different box.
Love the chickadees and nuthatches eating out my hand while I'm refilling the feeders.

Hi John and thanks for the post. Communal roosting is not uncommon just not sure if different species will share the same roost box. I guess there's only one way to find out. Would love to see some pics if you get any at your feeder and let us know if these species are happy to roost together.
