Do you live in an open area? Have you been considering a Bluebird Trail? Go for it this spring and enjoy their sweet song this summer! They particularly like open areas with lawns or meadows where the grass is kept short. If there are scattered perches, artificial or tree branches, for them, so much the better. It gives them a place from which they can scan the surrounding area for insects. Bluebirds are cavity nesters, and cavity trees are usually now removed for safety. Our Health Cedar houses are specifically designed to meet Bluebird requirements. They are also perfect for your Bluebird Trail. The houses are simple and inexpensive, but made of cedar, so will be in service for many years with minimal care required. For convenience, we have packaged ten houses together for your Trail.
The sloping roofs of these nest boxes extend over the entrance to keep water from entering the next. If water does get in, drain holes in the bottom allow it to pass on through, keeping the nest dry. The 1.5 inch entrance hole is the perfect size for Bluebirds while excluding larger birds, such as Starlings. Bluebirds nest at the bottom of cavities, so internal walls are roughened to make it easier for nestlings to climb to the entrance hole. A slot under the roof overhang provides ventilation, helping to regulate temperature. The front is readily opened for checking the nests and for house cleaning. Cedar wood contains oils which repel both water and insects, meaning these next boxes will be usable for many years. The house can be readily mounted to post or pole with a screw. Made in the USA.
We can also provide mounting poles if desired, but posts or poles from your local lumber yard are very sufficient, and much less expensive.
