Screech Owl Roosting & Nest Box

The Screech Owl, Saw-Whet Owl, and American Kestrel Roost & Nest Box from BestNest.

As cold weather season is setting in, there is still time to invite small owls and kestrels to your yard with a nest box that can be used as a roosting site this winter, and as a cavity nesting site next spring with this Screech Owl, Saw-Whet Owl, and American Kestrel Nest Box from Best Nest. Its classic pine construction provides a traditional look, and small owls and kestrels can access the deep interior via the 3-inch diameter entrance hole. This dual purpose Roost & Nest Box provides a great benefit to the birds that use it while providing exciting opportunities to observe the interesting behaviors of these iconic birds.

Measuring 11¼ inches wide x 11¼ inches deep x 18¾ inches high, the extended length of the shelter keeps nestlings safe from predators. One side panel swings upward for periodic nest checks; otherwise, a metal latch ensures it remains closed. An overhanging roof directs rain away from the entrance and the interior chamber.
