Description

Our Cedar Slot Style Bluebird Nesting Box is great for yards where House Sparrows may be a pest to nesting birds. The slot-style opening will be used by Bluebirds, and will provide an easy escape route for the brooding female Bluebird, should House Sparrows try to take over.
Also, House Sparrows are less likely to be attracted to this style of opening.

Handcrafted in western Massachusetts.

Bluebird nesting boxes should be mounted on a post or pole 4-6′ off the ground. Mounting on a tree invites predation by Raccoons or Squirrels.

We carry the perfect and inexpensive 6′ metal pole that comes with a flange for mounting the box and is easy to tap into the ground.
We also recommend a Squirrel Baffle or Raccoon Baffle placed below the box on the pole or post. Our Post-mount Raccoon Baffle is the perfect predator guard for a 4″x4″ wooden post..
