Blackbird Nest Box
Dimensions: 230 x 280 x 230 mm
This Blackbird Nest Box is handmade in the UK from solid FSC-certified timber.
Designed in the form of a deep open ledge with an apex roof for shelter, this nester emulates just the type of spot that a blackbird likes to build its nest.
The Blackbird nester should be hung from its brass hook at the height of at least 1.5m, preferably concealed in some foliage inaccessible by predators. The nest box should be sheltered from the prevailing wind. You may find robins, dunnocks and wagtails, which like an open-fronted nest box, could also be attracted to build their nests here.
Leave the nest box empty initially, as blackbirds will bring in their own nesting material. It would be best if you cleaned nests annually, but only after you are sure the nest is vacated after September. Blackbirds tend to have a long breeding season and may have several broods.
Similar to our other handmade bird habitats, the Blackbird Nest Box is crafted from slow-seasoned FSC-certified timber. This deliberate drying process enhances durability while eliminating the necessity for chemical preservatives. Additionally, our sturdy screwed and jointed construction techniques ensure long-lasting quality.
