I'm guessing you mean a Sparrow terrace? I used to have one they are made for sparrows because they can nest close to eachother, Where blue tits / great tits don't tend to nest close together (alot of fighting happens) but you might get one nest in it by a blue tit or a great tit I have known blue tits to nest in such boxes.

Hello Ann, as Paul said, do you mean a terrace of boxes i.e. Three boxes joined together, or do you mean a single box with three holes? The terraces usually only get used by sparrows, but I have a woodcrete box that has three holes and been used many times by blue tits, great tits and even coal tits.
Good luck whichever it is. Look forward to hearing what happens.
Sue
