Our nest boxes have been designed with consultation and input from many experts with New Zealand birds in mind. Our superior range of nesting boxes have many key features built in as standard and have a unique system to allow easy installation and access for inspection and cleaning.

These are some of the standard features of our Conservation Range of bird nesting boxes

  1. Roof drip groove
    A continuous groove runs around the underside of the nest box roof, this helps prevent water running from the roof to the nesting box.... very effective!
  1. Entrance holes
    Smooth nesting hole entrance (helping to reduce feather wear of adult birds during nest building and feeding of the hatch-lings.
  1. External foot holds
    Grooves located just below the entrance hole allow adult birds to grip the exterior of the box prior to entry.
  1. Internal bird ladder
    Grooves located on the interior below the entrance hole provide an easier foothold for nestlings when ready to fly the nest.
  1. Weather proof fixings
    Exterior screws and Exterior Non-Toxic adhesives are used in our construction.
  1. Galvanised steel lock pin
    Stainless Steel Pin is installed at a downward angle to prevent the pin from working loose and being lost.
  1. Inner roof
    Provides an extra layer of protection.
  1. Timber
    Easy to use fixing system.

Maintenance

The open fronted nest box is made from quality timber sourced from local, sustainably managed forest plantations. Non-toxic water based stains and sealants are used wherever possible in the manufacturing of our products. The water based stain can be topped up periodically to maintain its appearance.
