FauNature - Bringing You and Wildlife Together

Nesting Box Feedback

Just to let you know that I have the breeding boxes attached to the sides of my house. The box I bought from you last year is on its second or third lot of Eastern Rosella chicks.

Another old smaller (non-fauNature) box failed the Adelaide Rosellas when its lid came off - hence I bought another box from fauNature to replace it. We love watching and listening to these wild beautiful birds - from the initial tussle over nesting rights to watching the parents escort each fledging out of the box on its first flight. Simply amazing.

I think the design of these parrot boxes is very clever and makes them so secure.

Many thanks

I have just ordered another nesting box for kookaburras.  We have quite a few these days and I thought another box would be snapped up.Kookaburra chick

Anyhow, I have attached a photo of "Kevin" our baby Kookaburra who comes to visit regularly with mum and dad.  All three of them were hanging around their old box yesterday.  So lovely to see them and hear them each day. 

Kevin fell out of his box and was quite young so we put him back.  He then took another 2 weeks to try flying again - must have hurt himself the first time!  We thought he'd never leave home!

Kind regards

I'm sitting outside watching our family of Kookaburras as they feed their young. Yes, they loved your house and have at least two young.  We hear them feeding so we know there is more than one baby.  It's so lovely to have them in our garden of 5 acres.  We are not so worried about snakes now having these magnificent birds around.  I will order another one of your 5 star homes for when the 'teenagers' move out!

I will also try to snap a photo of them as they come and go from their house for you.

Thanks again for such a beautiful product.

Kind regards

Just to let you know that the boxes have arrived - smelling delightfully of a pine forest!  I am very much looking forward to the prospect of more lorikeet babies being reared in my garden.  The medium-sized boxes are going to my cousin's property on Cape Patterson, where she is hoping to attract Eastern Rosellas.

Thank you for this latest order - it is a pleasure to buy these beautiful bird boxes.  I feel sure I will be back for more before too long!

Kind regards

I have 2 possum boxes - brushtail, and after 2 weeks mummy possum and her baby are living in it.

She and a male possum, possibly her last baby, were living in the last open bit between the 1st/2nd floors of our house and they squabbled!  It was very sweet.

So now the gap has been closed up and after 2 weeks of returning she now knows she had to relocate in the yard. I was oh so worried, but she found her box.

She says hi each night, just pops her head out-dusk and I leave her fruit.  I think the boy must have moved on, she was obviously the dominant possum:) but he too has a box if he ever needs it.

Thank you for such a wonderful service/business and such value for money from miss possum and me.

...Happily more than 80% of our boxes are now occupied, with their owners giving their own entrance ways many special touches including much beak-altering of front doors to provide that “homey” feel!!!

WE had a kookaburra hatch the other day and as the kookaburras have been having a dreadful time with a flock of noisy minors, we are very glad for the kooka boxes.

We also have a ringtail possum baby that dances at its front door at 10am in the morning.

WE are now keeping a written, dated, couple of times a week, record of sightings of everything from lizards to birds that just call in (black cockatoos, a pair of Blue-faced Honeyeaters and a pair of Pacific bazars that call past semi-regularly now).

It's all very lovely indeed and I am very grateful to you for this!

Cheers

We received our kookaburra's box and owl's box yesterday.  Put the Kookaburra's up last night and they loved it!  Both of them were watching us as they tried our first box which was intended for possums, now they chosen the better house.  

Thanks for a great product.

My order (nest boxes) arrived this morning and I have already put them up!  The instructions were great and the product fantastic.

Thank you for your top service, quality product and hopefully very happy native wildlife!!!!  I hope to purchase more in the future...

Just to let you know that your beautifully made small parrot box arrived this morning.  I am extremely impressed with the rapidity of the delivery and the professionalism of your company!

Thank you.

We recently had to cut down a palm tree in which a possum and her baby were living, but my box had not arrived, so they relocated into another palm tree.  But within a couple of days of the box being secured in the tree the possums moved in.  The box is located near my chook pen so each morning I go down, just on dawn, to let the chooks out and I often see them climbing in the box for a sleep.

Just letting you know I have received the Medium Parrot Nest box I ordered and I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of this product, the fact that it came fully assembled and that it came with a detailed, helpful brochure.  It arrived promptly and safely.

We have put it in place and are now watching the Lorikeets “checking out” the strange box!!!

I will keep your website in my favourites and will definitely order from you again in the future.

The nesting boxes have arrived and they are excellent.

We have put the parrot one up without too much drama - one to go!

Thank you so much for your help...

Received the Possum Box this morning at 9.00am!  Good  service.

I am very pleased with the product and am sure my Mum will be as delighted as the possums!

A big thanks on behalf of our Brushtail community at Lady Bay Vineyard. We put all five boxes up on the weekend; 2 in the hay shed and 3 in some old River Reds.

We were prompted to order your boxes when we realised we had three 'homeless' possums in the hay shed. The mother and baby who were living behind a sheet of iron moved into their box within 24 hours. The other possum who was living in the same shed behind a plank of wood moved into its new home within 20 mins! (a trail of banana helped!).

We also enjoy a better view of the possums now (as they were hiding before). Every time we make a bit of noise in the shed, a possum pokes its head out of the box to look. They obviously feel safe.

Thanks again, we'll be in touch very soon to get some other boxes from you.

Just letting you know that we have received our new possum homes.

My children and I are excited about putting them together and getting the possums out of our roof and into their new homes.

I found your site on the internet, thank you for your prompt service.

I purchased an Owlet Nightjar box in December 2007.  It was erected in the mallee bush at Kondinin WA, shortly there after in January 2008.

For a time the box has appeared to be uninhabited, however it now seems to be occupied by an Owlet Nightjar.

We are very pleased that the bird box has proven to be a success and I thought that you may be interested in seeing the photos.

We may be in the market for some additional boxes soon!

Thank you, the Possum Boxes arrived today.  They look great!

Can’t wait for the weekend and give our little creatures the extra home alternatives.

I took delivery of my order a few days ago and I am impressed with the quality of the nesting boxes.

It was 28th July last year when I was presented with the box from a cousin to solve the problem of these Rosellas trying to eat their way into the house eaves next to my front door.  He immediately installed it there, onto the wall under the eaves next to my front door!  Less than a week later they were peering in, twittering and quickly set up home. Each time we went out the front door mother would take off only to return as soon as we’d left. Soon three babies were hatched and flew off one day straight off into the sky and I never saw them again.

How exciting it was to see them in all their stages, grey skin with blue veins, then fluffy down until they were blessed with the most magnificent colourings of bright red head and breast, white cheeks, yellow lower breast with blue tips and green tail..

By the time my son arrived home from Sydney for Christmas we’d had the second clutch of babies... three of them again.  My son knick named them “The Burglar Alarm” as they squawked each time anyone approached the front door.

And now it begins again... What a delight... It’s like being a parent or grandparent all over again!!

Many thanks James for giving everyone the opportunity to share some of natures true wonders!
