America’s smallest woodpecker species, the Downy is a backyard favorite. The friendly little birds enjoy being around people. Downy’s tend to use nest boxes in the winter as roosts to escape the cold, so one might want to put up a house in the fall. Comes standard with slate squirrel guard. Wood chips included and 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.
