BIRD CONSERVATION

Owl Boxes

» OWL BOXES Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete

Owl boxes are installed in parks and forests, not only to promote the diversity of species but also as a means

of controlling the Mouse population. The Owl Boxes No. 4 and No. 5 are intended as a substitute for the large

holes made by woodpeckers in old trees. These are often taken over by other types of animals, such as Squirrels.

Woodpeckers occasionally use these nest boxes as an overnight roost, but each year they will drill out a new

hole in a tree to lay their eggs and raise their young.

» Box No. 4 for Tengmalm's Owl and Stock Dove D.B.P.

The front panel of the box can be removed for inspection and cleaning purposes. Birds can be encouraged to use the

box if a thick layer of wood shavings or sawdust is spread over the recess in the floor.

Suitable for: Tengmalm's Owls, Stock Doves, Jackdaws, Pygmy Owls and Hoopoes, occasionally Squirrels.

Black, Green and Grey Woodpeckers will sometimes spend the night in these boxes too.

Interior of brood chamber: l 20 cm. Entrance hole: 80 x 90 mm. Installation height: 4 to 6 m.

External dimensions: l 25 x H 44 cm. Weight: approx. 9.3 kg.

» Box No. 4 without predator protection (see Fig. 1) Order No. 00 171/9

» Box No. 4 with Protective Front Panel (see Fig. 3) Order No. 00 183/2

Completely with Protective Front Panel (coated metal guard) to deter Martens. The wood-concrete front panel has

additional holes in which the guard is screw fixed. Supplied unassembled. Weight: approx. 10.3 kg.

» Protective Front Panel for Box No. 4 (for retrofitting and as a replacement) Order No. 00 186/3

For description, see Box No. 5 below.

» Stock Dove Drain Set for No. 4 (please order in addition to No. 4) Order No. 00 185/6

The moisture, especially that produced by Stock Dove droppings, can be drained away through a floor grille.

Stock Doves do not remove the droppings of their young. Depending on the number of young birds, several

centimetres of droppings can accumulate. The Drainage Kit therefore ensures optimum Stock Dove breeding.

» Box No. 5 for Tawny Owl

GAs with Box No. 4, the front panel can be removed for inspection. Here, too, the floor should be covered by a layer

of sawdust or similar material.

Suitable for: Tawny Owls, Stock Doves, Jackdaws, and in some areas, Goosanders and Goldeneyes too. For the

latter two species we can supply specially adapted nest boxes and special front panels for the No. 5 to attract

Goldeneyes and Goosanders. Please let us know your requirements!

Interior of nesting chamber: l 20 cm. Entrance hole: 110 x 120 mm. Installation height: 4 to 6 m.

External dimensions l 25 x H 44 cm. Weight: approx. 9.2 kg.

» Box No. 5 without predator protection (see Fig. 2) Order No. 00 181/8

» Box No. 5 with Protective Front panel (similar to Fig. 3) Order No. 00 184/9

Complete with Protective Front Panel (coated metal guard) to deter Martens. The wood-concrete front panel has

additional holes to which the guard is screw-fixed. Supplied unassembled. Weight: approx. 10.2 kg.

» Protective Front Panel for Box No. 5 (without box, for conversion and replacement) Order No. 00 187/1

Complete front panel with protection against Martens made of metal sheet for Box No. 5 (fits models made from

1980). Replacement is only supplied as a complete kit (front panel and metal sheet) to ensure accurate fitting,

as the wood-concrete front panels have to have precisely positioned drillholes made in the factory in order to

connect them with the sheet metal guard. On request we also make extra large sheet metal guards to increase

the protective effect still further in some areas.
