Schwegler Little Owl Box No 20B with predator protection and forced ventilation
This Schwegler little owl nest box No20B is manufactured from a woodcrete pipe which has been surrounded with wooden slats and covered in a tarred roofing material.
In addition to the little owl box No 20 this little owl tube has protection against predators. The entrance is completely redesigned to include an inner /outer two in one entrance guides (see image) that are offset one behind the other, this tried and tested method excludes predators such as Martens. Further design changes in the other end of the little owl box incorporate a forced ventilation system, the base has a staggered open joint which ensures air can pass through the owl tube without intrusion of natural light. The amount of droppings and the resulting moisture, which can otherwise adversely affect the successful survival of the brood, are substantially reduced.
Easy installation, inspection and cleaning can be done through removal of the little owl entrance hole. The ideal installation would be on a sturdy branch with the entrance hole facing the tree trunk. We recommend hanging about three little owl boxes in the same adjacent area, these will be used to store food and the young little owls may make use as a shelter.
