Give downy woodpeckers a comfortable home made just for them with the Coveside Downy Woodpecker House. This beautiful unit is constructed of sustainably grown eastern white pine, which provides a natural, attractive complexion to this home while also offering superior insulation from heat. A recycled slate guard cut from old Maine roof tiles surrounds the entrance hole to both discourage squirrels and block woodpeckers from enlarging this entry, thus making them vulnerable to predators. Wood shavings come with this house as an added bonus, and should be spread 1" to 2" deep in the nest box to attract woodpeckers. Soft wood excavated from dead trees makes for premium nesting material, so the included wood chips help simulate the perfect nesting environment for woodpeckers. Each side of this house features a gap for ventilation, and a sloping roof and drainage holes ensure the interior remains dry. To clean your house while it's not in use, simply lift up the side panel for easy access. Mounting is made easy with an included metal hook to help place this abode on a tree branch, on a building, or to a post to keep downy woodpeckers coming back to your yard. Create a welcoming roost to select woodpeckers by placing this Downy Woodpecker House in your bird garden. Made in the USA.
