Offer bluebirds a safe and secure nesting option with natural appeal when you place this Coveside Horizontal Bluebird House in your bird garden. Bluebirds located east of the Rocky Mountains are particularly fond of nesting in hollow tree limbs, and this dwelling was designed by Frank Zuern using this specific knowledge, as the horizontal shape and construction works to simulate a tree branch. Handcrafted, 0.75" thick pine lends this beautiful unit a rustic and lasting appeal, and a 1.5" diameter entry hole allows easy access for bluebirds and other songbirds while deterring larger feathered threats and other predators. A substantial predator guard offers staunch protection at the entry, while an extra internal baffle is well situated to safeguard the nest at the rear of the house. The rough hewn wood of the unit's interior gives fledgling birds a helpful grip when moving about the nest, and thin ventilation slots positioned below the roof lip encourage proper air flow and ventilation for your flock. An extended, overhanging roof gives a measure of protection against rain and other outdoor elements, and floor gaps in each corner of the shelter facilitate drainage to ensure a healthy flock. One side of this magnificent dwelling opens easily for regular cleanings and nest checks, and over time, this natural box will weather to a beautiful gray tone with repeated outdoor exposure, giving you a striking piece for your landscaping. Easily post mount this attractive item to give a lofty showcase to feathered friends. Protect bluebirds and other avians by giving them the habitat they prefer with this intuitive Horizontal Bluebird House. Made in the USA.
