BestNest Premium Wood Duck House KitInvite beautiful waterfowl to roost on your property with the BestNest Premium Wood Duck House Kit. Lovely wood ducks prefer to nest in cavities, but cannot excavate their own, so offering them a manmade roost helps them thrive. This generous shelter has a wealth of features, specifically designed to meet the needs of wood ducks. A 4" long and 3" tall, oblong entry hole allows these birds passage, and leads to a deep and spacious nesting area. This aids in protecting the eggs from predation, for a robust duck population. A slanted roof with a significant overhang keeps rain out of the nest, while a gap in each corner of the base allows any captured water to drain. For further avian comfort, ventilation gaps on the front and sides help regulate the home's internal temperature. Grooves on the interior of the door act as a ladder, helping ducklings reach the exit, and this panel opens upward for nest checks. A large thumbscrew keeps the front panel closed while the home is in use, and an included wooden slide can be installed over the entry hole to close the home during the winter. This slide can also be moved to the bottom of the roost during nesting season, creating an extra barrier for the eggs or ducklings through nest checks. Crafted from durable wood, this home adds a natural look to your bird sanctuary, and an image of a wood duck on the front lends a touch of style. Install the shelter on a sturdy post or tree using the three predrilled holes on its top lip, for enjoyment for several seasons. The kit assembles easily with its step by step instructions, and its light tan color creates a traditional look. Help wood ducks locate proper nesting spots in your area with this Premium Wood Duck House Kit. Assembly required.
