This model has 3 individual breeding chambers for 3 swift families. Swifts are uniquely adapted to life on the wing. They hunt flying insects, often in screeching flocks, and can remain in the air for long periods without landing.They prefer small colonies. All SCHWEGLER nest boxes can be painted to match the house wall. It is very important to ensure that you always use paint that is air-permeable. Installation of several units will assist the rapid formationof swift colonies.
Siting & positioning:
At least 6 to 7 m above the ground. Please ensure unobstructed access for birds entering and leaving the box. High up on external walls of buildings of all kinds, including churches and industrial buildings, preferably under theshelter of eaves or overhanging roofs. Can also be successfully installed on steep rock faces. A clear distance (drop) below the box is recommended, preferably5 m or more.
Cleaning and inspection:
The box can be easily opened by rotating the circular plate containing the entrance hole by 90° and removing it. Swift nests are always located in the darkest corner as far away from the entrance hole as possible. Cleaningis easy and convenient with this box but is not essential.
