Backyard Basics™ Bluebird Nest Box
Exclusive! The small hole is just right for eastern bluebirds, but keeps out competitors. Place on a pole 4-5 feet above ground in an open grassy area; face away from prevailing winds and towards a tree, post or shrub less than 100 feet away for fledglings to fly to. Set up several 100-125 feet apart to create a bluebird trail! 5 3/4"W x 11 3/4"H x 6"D.
Because many city dwellers are fastidious about their yards, they remove any dead trees and so remove nesting sites for the many cavity-nesting birds. By putting up birdhouses in your yard, you are helping the conservation of these species, especially Bluebirds and Tree Swallows, as well as Wrens and Chickadees. These nest boxes are made from natural, long-lasting Western Red Cedar and left rough to facilitate good footing for their avian occupants, and each meets the needs of the particular species it is designed to attract. Mount with our Heavy Duty Pole or House Hanger Bracket
No Tools Required! We have improved the design, adding a latch that makes opening the nest box for cleaning and monitoring a cinch.
