The simplest birdhouse feeder for House Sparrows can be constructed with the above dimensions. Mount the feeder by the eaves of houses or buildings and make sure it faces the east to avoid direct sunlight as well as intense wind and rain.
Make sure you have an access hole in your feeder. The access hole can be around 32 mm in diameter or about 1.2 to 2 inches. The hole is ideally placed about 6 to 7 inches from the floor.
