Schwegler 1N bird box
Birds which nest in recesses or cavities are at risk where there are large numbers of Magpies, Jays, Cats and Martens. The 1N has two entrances and a removable wooden insert (see picture below) and offers excellent protection. With two entrances the interior is well lit and birds will readily use it. In areas where there are many small predators it is equally as popular as models 2H and 2HW.
Special case: Robins are particularly attracted to this type of box, especially if it is placed approx. 1.0 to 1.5 m above the ground, preferably in a moist, shady area. The wooden insert, which can be removed for inspection and cleaning purposes, gives protection against predators because nesting takes place at the far end of the box. It is particularly effective against cats, martens, magpies and jays and therefore makes an effective contribution to breeding success.
Exception: Where there is a shortage of suitable nesting areas in parks and forests, this type of box will also be successfully used by all types of Tits, Tree and House Sparrows and many other species.
Deep Nest Box 1N
Secure against Magpies, Cats, Martens and Jays
The 1N box for cavity and recess dwellers offers the perfect protection against predators: The twin entrance hole design ensures that the built-in protection against small predators is particularly effective. Because the inside of the box is well lit, the Birds that use it nest at the rear of the brood chamber insert, making this type of box secure against Magpies, Cats, Martens and Jays. Another advantage of the brood chamber insert is that the parents can effectively feed their young from the area in front. Nest Box 1N is supplied with insert.
