This Pardalote Nesting box provides an ideal alternative to a natural hollow for Striated Pardalotes and may also be used by Forty-spotted Pardalotes (in SE Tasmania), where such resources are lacking.
The clearing of native trees across Australia has resulted in the loss of millions of natural hollows. The devastation is particularly apparent in urban environments, which account for 85% of the nation’s human population. Four species of pardalotes are found throughout Australia. Two of these species rely on natural hollows found in living or dead trees, as nesting sites.
The use of “PV Spacers”, small spacing rings which fit over the tek screw between the tree and the box, is highly recommended. These are included with your box.
Collection can be arranged for nesting boxes; alternatively, a freight charge will be applied. You will be advised of this cost before payment is requested.
Species to Attract:
- Striated Pardalotes
