Overview

Blackbird Nest Box

This Blackbird Nest box is handmade in the UK from solid FSC timber. It is designed in the form of a deep open ledge with an apex roof for shelter to emulate just the type of spot that a blackbird likes to build its nest.

The Blackbird nest box should be hung from its brass hook at a height of at least 1.5m preferably concealed in some foliage inaccessible to predators.The blackbird nester 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 nestbox empty initially as blackbirds will bring in their own nesting material. Nests should be cleaned out annually around September time, but only after you are sure the the nest is vacated. Blackbirds tend to have a long breeding season and may have several broods.

As with all our handmade habitats, the blackbird nesting box is made from slow-seasoned FSC timber which being slow-dried makes it very durable which eliminates the need for chemical preservatives. We also use robust screwed and jointed construction techniques for durability.
