The Bufflehead, with its striking white sides and the white patch on its head, is smaller than most cavity-nesting ducks. It is dependent on nesting boxes due to the scarcity of holes excavated by large woodpeckers and flickers. Best placed in swamps, shallow lakes or woods, this house comes with a single side opening and wood chips, which should be renewed each nesting cycle. As with all our nest boxes, the design includes appropriate ventilation, drainage and opens for easy clean-out. Sustainably grown 1″ thick Eastern White Pine provides superior insulation.
