Premium Bird Houses Screech Owl or Saw-Whet Owl House/Nesting Box for Small Owls
Wakefield premium bird houses are hand-crafted in the USA and made of only the finest, sustainably-grown Eastern White Pine Wood. Eastern White Pine is an ideal material for owl houses because it provides superior insulation during the summer and winter months while remaining light in weight and easy to hang. This house is designed specifically for smaller owls such as the Eastern/Western Screech Owl, Kestrels, and the Northern Saw-whet Owl. These owls often face tough competition from other birds because they are so small. This house provides a perfect cavity for the owls to nest in, complete with wood chips for nesting material. These types of owl breeds range from Southeastern Alaska, east across Central Canada to Nova Scotia, and south to Southern California, Arizona, Illinois, North Carolina and Connecticut. The White Pine used in the Wakefield Owl House is custom milled with a rougher head finish, providing the fledglings with a convenient foothold when they are ready to climb out of the nest. Ventilation is provided for at the top of each side panel and the slanted roof overhangs the entrance hole to provide appropriate drainage. The floor also has drainage at all four corners and is recessed to keep it dry and the fledglings protected. Installation of the Wakefield Owl House was designed to be as easy as possible. To install the Owl house, mount it on the side of a tree or post in deep woods, preferably near a swamp and about 5-15 feet above the ground. Empty the included bag of wood chips into the nest box. Though Saw-whet owls do not naturally use nesting materials, these wood chips are necessary to keep the eggs from rolling around the flat floor of the nest box. You will need to provide fresh wood chips each nesting season. Each Wakefield Owl House is constructed to last and includes a brochure that describes the species, placement and maintenance of the bird house.
