Sized just right for Flycatchers!
Offer vocal flycatchers a convenient roost in your woods or orchard with the Conservation Flycatcher Bird House. These insectivorous birds enjoy nesting in cavities, but will not create their own. They often use rotting logs, abandoned woodpecker holes, or man made housing for their nests. This box offers the perfect home for both great crested and ash-throated flycatchers. The 2" diameter round entrance hole offers room for the birds to easily enter the roost. The slanted roof has a significant overhang to protect the interior of the house from precipitation, while ventilation slots on either side of the roof keep the interior temperature regulated. Angled corners at the recessed base of the home offer drainage to the nest. The deep house and lack of a perch prevent predators from reaching the eggs, to keep the clutch safe. The rough hewn pine allows nestlings a secure grip when they are trying to exit the nest. One side panel lifts upward for easy cleaning and nest checks, and a small metal latch in the corner keeps it securely closed. The 0.75" thick wood aids in insulating the home, while the light color of the unfinished pine keeps it cool in the summer. This pine will age to a graceful gray color over time and with exposure to the elements, enhancing its natural beauty. A metal hanger at the top of the item and predrilled hole near the base allow it to be post or tree mounted with ease. Help flycatchers thrive in your area with this Flycatcher Bird House. Quality Eastern White Pine construction. Proudly handcrafted in the USA!
