Product Description

Our western red cedar Bluebird Nesting Box is our top selling bird house, and for good reason. Designed with proper ventilation and drainage to provide a safe habitat, the front of the house also opens up for easy removal of old nesting materials (tools not necessary). All major joints are screwed together (rather than stapled or nailed). Fasteners are yellow zinc plated or galvanized, so no rusting occurs.

Built to exact specifications for Eastern Bluebirds, it will also accommodate Tree Swallows and Chickadees. The entry hole features a predator guard, a simple block of cedar placed over the hole so that Raccoons cannot reach in. We recommend adding a copper hole protector, to prevent chewing or other deterioration of the hole.

Your Bluebird Nesting Box should be placed on a metal pole or post 4 – 6 ft. off the ground. Placing any nesting box on a fence or a tree invites predation.

We recommend cleaning out after each brood of birds. Simply open up the front of the box, hose out or use a brush with a very light bleach solution (1 tblsp to a quart of water), let it dry and you’re back in business. We have had 3 successive Eastern Bluebird broods in one season with this Bluebird Nesting Box!
