FauNature - Bringing You and Wildlife Together
Ten species of Kingfishers are found throughout Australia. Kingfishers are almost exclusively hollow nesters, however the “location” of the nests can be vary considerably between species. These “nesting hollows” may be pre-existing in trees (trunks or spouts) or dug into tree-termites nests, ground termite mounds, creek banks, cliffs or evening road-cuttings depending on the species concerned.
Over half of these kingfishers include on tree hollows as nesting sites and in some species these resources are particularly important. The typical species you may attract to the Kookaburra Nesting Box include Laughing Kookaburra , Blue-winged Kookaburra and other larger Kingfishers.
This nesting box provides an ideal alternative to a natural hollow for large Kingfishers, where such resources are lacking. The box comes in kit form to reduce the cost and allow you greater involvement, and potential satisfaction, in completing the nest box yourself.
The addition of Spacers (2) is highly recommended for a nesting box, if it is to be affixed to a growing tree.
Collection can be arranged for boxes; alternatively a freight charge will be applied. You will be advised of this cost, before payment is requested.
Note: Kookaburras exhibit high nest site fidelity, so if the Kookaburra “family” in your area regularly produce young birds there is little point in putting up a new nesting box. If however, you just have a pair of Kookaburras, without an extended family, the addition of a nesting box may be just what they need.
