The Coveside Saw-Whet and Screech Owl House from BestNest.
Important for any nest box, a latched side panel opens by lifting it upward to provide easy access for a quick nest check or seasonal cleaning.
It’s that time of the year to add a new nesting cavity for small owls with the Coveside Saw-Whet and Screech Owl House from BestNest. Screech Owls are a favorite bird among many birders in the United States and Canada, and it’s possible to attract them throughout the year to roost and perhaps this spring they will choose to nest in your yard. At the same time, you will be providing a predator proof nest site that is not always available in the form of natural cavities. Other similar-sized owls will also utilize this nest box, including a pair of Northern Saw-Whet Owls, Boreal Owls, Northern Pygmy Owls, and others – maybe even a pair of American Kestrels.
This durable nest box is constructed with eastern white pine with a 3-inch diameter entrance, a gently slanted roof, drain holes, and ventilation slots. Important for any nest box, a latched side panel opens by lifting it upward to provide easy access for a quick nest check or seasonal cleaning.
A pine predator guard is installed around the entrance, and nestlings can climb to the entrance using the roughed interior that provides a substantial grip. The pine construction provides good insulation and will naturally weather toward a gray color over time. This nest box measures 11 x 9¼ x 17½ inches, and a bag of wood chips is included for you to add to the floor as a soft nesting substrate.
