Coveside Sparrow-Resistant Eastern Bluebird HouseAttract beautiful, musical bluebirds to your yard while dissuading sparrow invaders with the Coveside Sparrow-Resistant Eastern Bluebird House. The innovative design of this roost caters to bluebirds, helping to deter sparrows from the area. Research from the University of Kentucky found that bluebirds will readily use a slot entry, while sparrows prefer a round hole. The 4" long and 1.25" high, rectangular entry on this house perfectly meets these needs, while remaining protected from the elements by the overhanging roof. A 1.5" thick wooden block rests inside the home, to decrease the depth of the nest to further deter sparrows. The same research found that bluebirds do not mind a shallow home, although sparrows will leave a nest that is not deep. The open corners at the top of the roof offer ventilation, helping to regulate the internal temperature, and a small gap in each corner of the floor keeps the nest dry. Lift the front panel of this home for nest checks and to adjust the depth if needed. A metal latch keeps the home securely closed, and the rough interior of the item helps nestlings grip it and climb out. The 0.75" thick, eastern white pine construction creates a lasting shelter, and will age beautifully over time. Mount this roost to a pole or post for optimal occupancy chances. Keep sparrows away from your bluebirds with this Sparrow-Resistant Eastern Bluebird House. Made in the USA.
