Cedar Bluebird Nesting Box Kit
This well-designed and built kit comes from MBS lifetime member Gene Wasserman and his company WoodCraft Kits. Each house kit comes completely cut, sanded, drilled, and ready to assemble with nothing but a hammer or power screw driver. All the hardware and detailed instructions for assembly are included. It is made from Cedar, which is the best exterior wood to use in birdhouse construction due to its high resistance to rot and insects. This kit is a great project for both adults and kids (supervised of course). The two photos above show the assembled nesting box. Comes complete with mounting bracket & hardware for 1/2" diameter electrical conduit poles.
• The oval-shaped 1 1/2" x 1 3/4" entry hole allows Bluebirds and Tree Swallows to enter. Also comes with an optional block which can be used to change the entry hole size to 1 1/2" diameter.
• Rough cedar exterior and entry grooves make perching and entry easier for the birds
• Interior grooves on the house front to help nestlings leave the box
• Generous roof overhang to help keep the rain out
• Grooves under the roof and recessed floor reduce water seeping into box
• Bluebird and monitoring information included, as well as a card for recording nesting data
Non-Member's Price: $30.00
