Over 50 species of parrots are found throughout Australia. Most of these rely on natural hollows found in living or dead trees as nesting sites. There are however a few specialised species that utilise termite mounds or dense vegetation on the ground.
The typical species you may attract to the Large Parrot Box include Galahs, Major Mitchell’s Cockatoos, Gang-gang Cockatoos and other similar sized parrots.
This wildlife/nest box provides an ideal alternative to a natural hollow for small parrots, where such resources are lacking.
The addition of Spacers (3) is highly recommended for a wildlife Box, if it is to be affixed to a growing tree.
