Overview

The Downy is a backyard favorite and is America's smallest species of woodpecker. They are friendly little birds that enjoy being around people.

Since Downys tend to use nest boxes in the winter as roosts to escape the cold, you may consider putting up a house in the fall. Their habitat is predominantly open woodlands (specifically deciduous trees) and along streams. They can also be found in created habitats like orchards, parks, suburbs, and nested along fencerows.

This house comes standard with slate squirrel guard and wood chips.

Features & Benefits:

  • House is rough-sawn
  • Handcrafted from 1" white pine for insulation and durability
  • Mounting hardware not included (2/1-1/2" wood screws recommended)
  • Made in the USA

About Coveside Conservation:

All wildlife nests / boxes are correct in every detail for each species and come with species specific literature and mounting instructions.

All of our nest boxes are crafted of custom milled, premium grade, sustainably grown, Eastern white pine, from Robbins Lumber mill in Maine. Robbins Lumber is a leader in responsible forestry management practices. They replant where they harvest, secure the soil from erosion, preserve wildlife habitats and ensure that a sixth generation of the Robbins family can depend on a healthy and productive forest.

  • Product Quality: Customers tell us again and again that the Coveside products are “the best on the market” with the unique rougher-head finish and secure construction.
  • Environmental Concern: The dimensions are correct for each species and care is given to ventilation and drainage for the well being of the inhabitants.
  • Conservationists Prefer: Coveside products are manufactured from eastern white pine which is preferable because it is a second-growth tree which rejuvenates quickly.
  • Educational Materials: Each product comes with a brochure and a card telling about the wildlife inhabitant that will use it, recommending ideas for location and suggestions for maintenance procedures.
  • Experts Select: Coveside habitats were selected to be on permanent display in the United States Arboretums Buchheister National Bird Garden in Washington, DC and the Wildlife Garden at River Farm Gardens of the American Horticultural Society in Alexandria, VA.
