BestNest Premium Screech Owl / Kestrel Houses, Pack of 2Offer a few birds of prey safe and sturdy nesting sites with these BestNest Premium Screech Owl / Kestrel Houses. Inviting these skillful hunters into your yard helps control rodent populations naturally, while allowing you to enjoy the beauty of different birds. This set contains 2 matching, wooden homes, both artfully designed to meet the needs of small owls or kestrels. The rectangular shape of the domiciles creates plenty of nesting space, with small openings on each corner of the bases for drainage. The 3" diameter entry on each allows these raptors passage, while remaining protected from the elements by the sloped roof with significant overhang. An image of a screech owl clinging onto a branch is burnt into the front panel of each home, and ventilation holes near the top of each provide temperature regulation. A unique thumbscrew at the base of the front panel keeps both homes securely latched, and a sliding baffle enables you to close each roost at the end of the season. This wooden slat rests within grooves on the sides of the home, and can sit at the bottom of the roost to protect eggs and nestlings during maintenance. Slide the panel upward and use the included wooden tabs to keep it in place, blocking the entry hole when these birds are no longer nesting. Securely mount these shelters to a post or tree by drilling through the back and top lip on each. The wooden construction adds a natural charm to your yard, and the all weather hardware remains durable. Give birds of prey lasting, appropriate shelter by placing these Premium Screech Owl / Kestrel Houses in your sanctuary.
Note: This package contains 2 of the BestNest Premium Screech Owl / Kestrel Houses. Due to the natural wood construction, individual homes may vary in appearance in terms of knots, grain, and color. These do not affect the function of the homes and are not considered as defects.
