Woodpeckers do not readily use ordinary nest boxes. However, this birch trunk nesting box has proven very attractive to the great spotted woodpecker, among others. The box has a small pre-drilled entrance hole that the woodpecker carves larger on its own. In addition, the hive has a thick solid bottom into which the woodpeckers carve a nest hole once they have access.

The box will probably only be used by the woodpeckers for one year, as they like to carve a new cavity each year. The used nest box then provides an excellent nesting place for other birds such as, tits, starlings or the nuthatch.

Place the nest box in a tree from a height of 2 meters. The best places are along forest edges, in the woods or in some larger gardens. Multiple nest boxes together increases the chances of success.

By opening the lid, the nesting box can be cleaned. Do this in the winter months. This nesting box is made of soft untreated birch wood and therefore has a short lifespan of only a few years.
