Staying warm in harsh winter conditions can be a challenge to many species.  Several small birds, including bluebirds, chickadees, titmice and kinglets will use roost boxes to stay warm on cold winter nights.

A next box can be used as a roost box.  Check to make sure it is clean inside as cold weather starts.  Insects or other critters may have move in since the end of the nesting season.

Most roost box designs have the entry hole at the bottom to help keep warm air in.  Some nest box designs allow the front plate to rotate, with the hole on the top in the summer, and the bottom in the winter.

Something as simple as a small brush pile in a corner of your property can also serve as a good place for birds to find shelter from winter snows and storms.
