Horizontal Winter Roost

Horizontal Winter Roost

$49.99 each

Provide a spacious abode with this newly designed winter roost. With a wooden dowel stretching from side to side inside, there is plenty of room for the whole family to spend a cold winter night. The front opens for inspection and clean-out, while the opening is protected from squirrels with a slate guard. Handcrafted in Maine from eastern white pine. 7 3/4"h x 18"w x 7"d.

A roosting box looks like a nesting box, but it's designed specifically to offer cover to birds and other small wildlife instead of as place to lay eggs and raise young. Songbirds including wrens, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice and bluebirds will take shelter inside the roosting box during bad weather and on cold nights.

Made in the USA

Comments about Shop NWF - D2C for Horizontal Winter Roost:

Product Comments: This roost arrived promptly and in perfect condition. However, it came with only one dowel for birds to perch on instead of the two advertised. I don't really expect this to cause any problems though.

Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to review this product. We will check the inventory of this item to be sure all components are included. Update: We have checked our inventory and checked with our supplier on this item and it does actually come with just one wooden dowel. We have updated the product information to reflect this correction.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Shop NWF - D2C for Horizontal Winter Roost:

Product Comments: I love this product so much I ordered it for my sister. We hung it in a sheltered location on a tree to offer the most protection. We have had some fierce winds and rains this mild fall and it has provided a great shelter. It did not wobble at all. I love the naturalness of this house, no paints or doodads to attract predators. My husband hung it with little trouble. I would no suggest a pole for using.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Shop NWF - D2C for Horizontal Winter Roost:

Product Comments: I put this bird roost box up on a large Mulberry tree near the East side of my home, where I can watch it from a house window to see who is using it. Also, it's near 3 hanging feeders in my "bird sanctuary" area, also near a couple of wicker bird nesting boxes, and out of the worse wind. I'm anxious to see who comes and goes from it and from the wicker ones, since I have a huge variety of birds year round. I bought this for my own bird watching pleasure, but might buy one for my son's family also in another state if birds here seem to like it. It came well packed in only about 2 days.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
