Ornithologically correct for Downy Woodpeckers!
We make a habitat for every species of cavity nesting bird in North America. All of our products are correct for the species, easy to clean, well insulated and provide for the proper drainage. Every house includes an educational brochure specific to the species.
America's smallest woodpecker species, the Downy is a backyard favorite. Downys tend to use nest boxes in the winter as roosts to escape the cold. Comes standard with a slate squirrel guard and wood chips. Constructed from quality Eastern White Pine. Made in the USA!
Optional Extra Wood Chips 3 Bags/Pack (available at checkout)
These pine shavings provide an annual replenishment of nesting material for woodpeckers, ducks, owls, etc. Better than sawdust, which can mat down and retain moisture. Sold by the gallon bag for individual houses.

Optional Blowfly Inhibitor Screen (available at checkout)
Prevent blowfly larvae from harming nestlings in your bird homes using the Conservation Blowfly Inhibitor Screen for Bird Houses. Blowflies often lay their eggs in nests inside bird homes, and the larvae feed on the nestlings to gain strength. This mesh screen forms a platform in the bottom of your nest box, elevating the nest off the floor. This aids in keeping the nest dry, as blowflies tend to prefer damp areas. The 0.25" mesh also is small enough so that adult blowflies cannot reach the nest through the bottom of the home, and it allows the larvae to fall through the grid so you may easily remove them from the nest. The sturdy metal construction will easily withstand the weight of a cavity-nesting bird family, and its size is perfect for use in many bluebird, woodpecker, or swallow houses. Keep blowflies away from nestlings using this Blowfly Inhibitor Screen for Bird Houses. Dimensions: 4"L x 3.75"W x 0.75"H
