Nuthatch Box 5KL

Nesting Baskets

» NUTHATCH BOX 5KL Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete

Nuthatches prefer to occupy larger boxes like the No. 4 and 5 Owl Boxes,

because of their larger internal diameter, rather than alternatively available

smaller nest boxes. They fill the large entrance hole with clay and damp

soil until it matches their required width of l 32 mm, thus preventing larger

Birds from gaining access. To overcome this, the 5KL has been designed

specifically for this uniquely agile species. No sawdust or other similar

material need to be placed inside because the Nuthatch, in common with all

other small Birds, will construct its own nest.

We recommend that you hang this type of Nuthatch Box 5KL in close

proximity to Owl Boxes No. 4 + 5. If there are no Owl Boxes available in

the immediate vicinity, the oval Nest Box 2GR on page 8 can be used as

an alternative. The Nuthatch usually occupies the larger available cavity.

Litter (bedding) is not required. The Nuthatch builds its own nest from

pieces of bark. As with all small Birds, it is not necessary to insert material.

Shortened version of Owl Box No. 4 + 5 with modified entrance hole size

(see page 17).

External dimensions: l 25 x H 30 cm.

Interior of nesting chamber: l 20 cm.

Width of entrance hole: l 32 mm.

Weight: approx. 8.4 kg.

Order No. 00 182/5

The diameter and shape of the first two Nesting Baskets for Raptors and Owls match those of the natural nests of

Crows, Magpies and certain Raptors. The baskets are attached (by wire) to the forks of trees and have proved highly

successful. Birds Of Prey and Owls tend to use the same nests and eyries for many years.

The smaller Nesting Basket is supplied with a mulch of mixed tree bark. This should be thoroughly dampened,

spread around the basket and pressed in with the palm of the hand. The only changes are made by the Birds

themselves each year when they add small branches and twigs to reline the nest. The same process can be applied

to the large nesting basket if desired using local materials.
