WHY COVESIDE?

Wook Ducks love Coveside Nest Box - Dr Gerald Barrack, Allendale, NJ

Coveside manufactures a nest box for every species of cavity-nesting bird in North America. Designed for each species by experts, our products provide the correct dimensions, materials, ventilation and drainage. For instance, Sunshine's Bat House was developed by Amanda Lollar, an internationally recognized authority on bat behavior and director of Bat World, a sanctuary in Mineral Wells, Texas.

Coveside's products are handcrafted in Maine from eastern white pine. Each item is constructed to last and includes a brochure that describes the species, and the placement and maintenance of the product.

Coveside American Kestrel House
Formerly called the Sparrow Hawk, the kestrel eats insects and small rodents. House includes an internal perch (shown in photo with door open) so mother and babies can keep an eye out for their next meal.

RANGE: Resides from British Columbia east to Nova Scotia, and south to northern California, and to Texas and Florida.
HABITAT: Lives in low, wet woods and swampy forests.

Coveside Bat Beacon
This easy-to-mount bat house is designed to fit on a standard purple martin pole. With three chambers and an attic, it provides an ideal free-standing habitat for establishing a bat colony. Have any bats taken up residency? The purple martin pole makes lowering easy and the side opens for convenient inspection.(25"h x 8"w x 7-1/2"d)

   
Coveside Bat Condominium

Coveside Bat Tower
Latest research indicates that the most successful bat houses are mounted on buildings or are free-standing. The innovative bat tower mounts directly on a 4x4 post. The post actually becomes the landing platform, and from there bats climb into the house. The four internal chambers and attic provide for multiple roosting opportunities. In addition, the side opens to quell the curiosity of the serious "bat-o-phile." (Picture shows house with door partially opened.).
(23"h x 6-3/4"w x 7"d)

Coveside Large Sunshine's Bat House
This special house was designed by Amanda Lollar, who rescued and rehabilitated a little bat named "Sunshine" and then wrote a book about her.

With two chambers and an open slot at the bottom, this abode is suitable for all species of small, insectivorous bats.

(12-1/2"h x 6"w x 8-1/2"d)

   
Coveside Open Top Bluebird House
This sparrow-resistant house, similar to our standard bluebird house, has a circular opening in the roof. Naturally, bluebirds will nest in rotten fence posts and stumps, so sun and rain do not deter them. On the other hand, sparrows are not as tolerant. A durable, coated wire barrier prevents predators from entering through the top. In addition, a plastic cap is included to provide shelter after the bluebirds have started nesting and/or can be used to feed mealworms to hungry chicks.

Coveside Small Sunshine's Bat House
This special house was designed by Amanda Lollar, who rescued and rehabilitated a little bat named "Sunshine" and then wrote a book about her. Her field testing of many of these houses indicates that bats are readily attracted to and occupy this style. With two chambers and an open slot at the bottom, this abode is suitable for all species of small, insectivorous bats. Features include a large, screened landing platform, roughened interior surface and echolocation slots on the sides to help bats locate the hollow cavity. Can accomodate 100, 200 or 300 in three different sizes (small, medium and large).

(13"h x 7"w x 9"d)

   
Coveside Small Wood Duck House
"Dump nesting" occurs when a number of females lay eggs in a single house, which sometimes results in clutches with over 70 eggs. Mississippi State University did a study of Wood Ducks in an effort to reduce this problem. A smaller nest box was designed and "dump nesting" was reduced. Although fewer ducklings are fledged from each box, the survival rate is improved and the cost per fledgling is less. This box comes with a wire ladder and nesting chips, and the front opens for observation and cleaning.
RANGE: Breeds from British Columbia south to California, and from Montana east to Nova Scotia, and south to Texas and Florida; absent from Rocky Mountains and Great Plains. Winters near Pacific Coast north to Washington, and to New Jersey in East, rarely further north.

(17"h x 7-1/2"w x 15"d)

   
Coveside Sparrow Resistant Bluebird House
This Kentucky style, slot entrance bluebird house is designed to thwart sparrows. According to research at the University of Kentucky, bluebirds prefer a slot entrance to the standard circular hole -- sparrows prefer the opposite. In addition, sparrows don't like a shallow box and bluebirds don't seem to mind. This box is only 5" deep but if sparrows still continue to be a problem, a wooden insert is included to reduce the depth even more. Sparrows rarely use the 3-1/2" depth, but bluebirds will still occupy it.
RANGE: Breeds east of the Rockies from southeastern Canada to Gulf of Mexico. Winters in southern part of breeding range and Mexico.
HABITAT: Enjoys open woodlands, fields and farmlands with scattered trees.

(10"h x 6"w x 8-1/2"d)
