Snow Bunting Birdhouse

The Snow Bunting Nestbox is constructed with cedar, pine, or almost any soft wood.

It has a 5″ by 5″ floor (inside dimensions), 8″ floor to ceiling (inside front) and 1 3/4″ diameter entrance hole located 6″ below the roof.

A hinged roof provides easy access for monitoring and cleaning. Brass shutter hooks secure roof in closed position. Always use corrosion resistant screws and hardware.

Drilling countersunk pilot holes in primary and regular pilot holes in secondary work pieces reduces a tendency for wood to split and makes for easy assembly in minutes with a power or hand held screwdriver.

The back wall panel extends beyond both top and bottom to provide for mounting holes (usually to a post or wall) and a third mounting hole can be drilled inside the box just under the roof. Stagger these holes so that all are not in line along a single wood grain which can weaken and cause wood to split.

Mount on a post or the wall of a house or shed. Remove the nest after the brood rearing seasons are over.
