Construct a lasting habitat and fantastic nesting site for waterfowl with this Coveside Unassembled Wood Duck House. This package of pre-cut, specifically-sized panels and necessary hardware assembles together readily, creating a fantastic nest box for wood ducks and other small ducks. These amazing birds often prefer to nest in cavities, but are unable to excavate their own, relying on old or abandoned woodpecker nests to meet their needs. As such, they often will use manmade shelters, and this significant, pine unit provides a wealth of roosting room. The front panel sports a 4" wide and 3" tall, oval opening to best attract wood ducks, and sits near the top of this board to deter predation. A vinyl-coated grid sits on the inside of this piece, acting as a ladder for nestlings to reach the exit when ready, enhanced by the rough-hewn pine. A generous overhang on the sloped roof keeps water from entering the chamber, and a gap in each base corner provides drainage for any captured precipitation. These robust, 0.75" thick pine boards wonderfully insulate the nesting area, while gaps along the top of the home ensure it remains nicely ventilated. One side panel is divided with dual-latched sections; the larger, top piece swings upward for nest checks, while the smaller, lower piece allows for cleaning of the nesting area. Predrilled holes, included hardware, and easy-to-follow instructions make this domicile simple to assemble, and an included hanger aids in placing the unit against a wall, post, or tree easily. The included bag of wood chips helps waterfowl create a cozy nest and keeps the eggs in place, and the pine body remains durable for seasons of service, aging to a lovely gray tone over time. The kit makes a great family-building project, and the thoughtful design makes completing the shelter simple. Help waterfowl find suitable nesting sites by adding this Unassembled Wood Duck House to your shoreline. Assembly required. Made in the USA.
