Give Saw-Whet and Screech Owls a competitive edge over other small birds seeking nesting areas near your house. Since they prefer nesting in the cavities of hollow trees, they readily accept nesting boxes. This habitat provides a perfect cavity, complete with wood chips for nesting material to protect eggs from rolling around. Coveside's nesting boxes are constructed of 1" thick, sustainably-grown eastern white pine for excellent insulation. Ventilation is provided along the top of each side panel. The slanted roof overhangs the entrance hole to offer appropriate drainage, and the recessed floor features drainage on all four corners to keep the nesting box cozy and dry. Plus, unpainted lumber is custom milled with a "rougher head" finish, which allows fledglings a foothold when they are ready to climb out of the nest. Side panel tilts open for easy seasonal refresh of nesting materials. 17-3/4" x 9-1/4" x 11" with a 3" opening.
