Coveside Bufflehead Duck HouseOffer bufflehead ducks a safe and comfortable home with the Coveside Bufflehead Duck House. These dramatic ducks, with their black and white coloration and iridescent head, offer an enchanting addition to your lake. Cavity nesting ducks are often dependent upon manmade housing for their roost, as they cannot form a cavity in trees like other birds. This home offers the perfect shelter for buffleheads. The slanted roof has a significant overhang to prevent rain from entering the home, while ventilation slots on either side of the roof keep the interior temperature regulated. Angled corners and a recessed bottom at the base of the home offer drainage to the nest, keeping it dry. The absence of a perch, combined with the deep form of the home, help prevent predators from reaching the eggs. A ladder underneath the door inside the box aids nestlings in exiting the house when called by the mother, and the included bag of wood chips offers nesting material for the birds. 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 helps insulate 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 allows it to be post or tree mounted with ease. Help increase the bufflehead population in your area with this Bufflehead Duck House. Made in the USA.
