Attract the majestic woodpecker to your backyard with our handmade Woodpecker Box. Made from solid FSC-certified cedar, this box is not only environmentally friendly but also durable enough to withstand the elements. The naturalistic silver birch entrance hole blends in seamlessly with any environment, creating a perfect home for woodpeckers. With a hinged inspection lid and camera clip included, you can easily monitor your feathered friends as they build their nest.
We even include a bag of wood shavings as nesting material to make the process easier for them. Add this unique and beautiful piece to your backyard today and enjoy watching the vibrant colors of the woodpecker up close.
The woodpecker box should be positioned high up between 3 – 5 metres on a mature tree in a quiet location for the best chance of occupancy. Face the entrance hole away from the prevailing wind to face between north and south-east.
Our FSC certified slow-seasoned, naturally durable timbers to negate the need for chemical preservatives or stains. The timber will silver with age, and small cracks will appear with wetting and drying, but the wood does not rot. You may use a water-based exterior varnish for aesthetic purposes, but it is not required treatment. All the joints are screwed together for longevity.
The woodpecker boxshould ideally be cleaned out in autumn, ready for the coming spring.
Other species which may use the box with a 55mm hole are starlings.
