To build a birdhouse for the Juniper Titmice, some ideal measurements would be a 4” by 4” floor and 8-10” height. Put a 1 ¼ inch opening. Fill the feeder with lots of shelled peanuts or black oil sunflower seed to make sure the Juniper Titmice come near. You can also put chunks and slices of fruits like grapes or apple. Hang the feeder about 8 to 15 feet off the ground.
Another option is to have a suet feeder filled with peanut butter suet because this is another tempting food for the Juniper Titmice. You can also smear the peanut butter suet in nearby tree trunks so they can have a treat anywhere they first land or rest.
