The Downy is America’s smallest woodpecker and is a backyard favorite because it is comfortable around people. Putting up a birdhouse in the fall is a treat for the Downy as it will tend to use a nest box in the winter as a roosting box to escape the cold. Comes standard with slate squirrel guard and wood chips. Hand crafted in the USA by Coveside, of Eastern White Pine which provides insulation and durability. The wood will naturally age to a beautiful gray color over time, and does not require painting or staining. Habitat: Likes open forests of mixed growth, orchards, or swamps. Range: Resides throughout eastern United States.
