Ten species of Kingfishers are found throughout Australia. Kingfishers are almost exclusively hollow nesters, however the “location” of the nests can be vary considerably. 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 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 possibly 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.
