Schwegler 2BN Tree Creeper nest box with predator protection


There are two types of Tree Creeper in Europe: the species known simply as the Tree Creeper, and the Short-toed Tree Creeper. They are very difficult to tell apart although experts can distinguish them by their calls or by slight differences in the colouring of their feathers.

Both species prefer a nest box that allows contact inside with a tree trunk that has a coarse type of bark, such as oak, alder, poplar, pine, pear or apple trees. For this reason the Tree Creeper boxes are open at the rear (the tree side).

With their pointed beaks the birds can search among the cracks in the bark for spiders and insects such as beetles. The entrances, on both sides, provide excellent protection against cats and martens.

The nest boxes should be hung on trunks with a diameter of between 25 and 30 cm. Depending on regional conditions, there may be differences in the rate of occupancy between the 2B and 2BN. We therefore recommend that you begin by using the same number of both types. After one or two breeding seasons it will be apparent which type is most popular in a particular area.

The Schwegler 2BN has a brood chamber with a slightly reduced depth and greater height compared with the Type 2B, and no cleaning flap. The box is placed on the aluminium nail supplied, which is hammered halfway in, and wire is also used to attach the box to the trunk. This flexible system largely makes allowance for further growth of the trunk, but should be checked every few years. The box is cleaned by lifting it up or removing it completely from the trunk. A lip at the top side or edge of the box acts as a seal, pressing into the rough bark and preventing water from entering the box.

External dimensions approx.: H 35 x W 22 x D 10 cm.
Nesting chamber: approx. 11 x 6.5 cm.
Scope of delivery: Nestbox, Aluminum Nail, wire for fixing.
Weight: approx. 1.5 kgs.
