Offer local flycatchers a handy roost in your woods or landscaping with the charming Coveside Flycatcher Bird House. Flycatchers eat insects and nest in cavities, but will not create their own, instead using rotting logs, abandoned woodpecker holes, or manmade housing for their dwellings. This natural pine box is sourced from a family owned mill with over a century's history of sustainable forestry practices to offer a truly unique and trusty home for great crested and ash-throated flycatchers alike. The spacious, 2.25" diameter round entry hole invites birds to easily access the roost, and the downward slanted roof sports a significant overhang to protect the interior from unwanted precipitation, while ventilation slots resting on either side of the roof aid in regulating the inside temperature for your feathered friends. Gaps in the corners of the home's base encourage drainage to ensure a dry dwelling, while the lack of a natural perch stops predators from entering the house and disrupting the nest. The rough hewn pine gives nestlings a secure grip when it's time to exit the shelter. A single side panel lifts upward for easy cleaning and nest checks, while a small metal latch in the corner keeps it securely closed. The 0.75" thick wood aids in proper insulation for the home, while the natural pine's light color makes for a cooler internal temperature during hotter summer months. Over time and with exposure to the outdoor elements, this pine will age to a striking gray color, serving to enhance its beauty while offering an interesting change in appearance through repeated use. A metal hanger at the top of the house's back panel as well as a predrilled hole near the base allow you to post or tree mount this fantastic habitat in easy fashion. Allow flycatchers to thrive and find respite in your area with this outstanding Flycatcher Bird House. Made in the USA.
