Gilbertson Nest Box - NABS Approved

Simple to monitor, an Eastern bluebird favorite!

The Gilbertson Nest Box is approved by the North American Bluebird Society. Now with optional poly-lumber matching roof.

Preferred by blues over the years, cool birdhouse mounts quickly and easily on 1/2-inch metal conduit. PVC will not rot, split or crack, nest box will host many successful broods with its great features:

  • Overhang roof design discourages house sparrows, easy to attach a wren guard or sparrow spooker.
  • Body is easily removed by squeezing and elongating the top opposite sides, minimizes early fledges, and allows for easy monitoring.
  • Recessed floor will not accumulate water, center drain hole should be checked every few months.
  • Designed to keep water out, and nestlings dry.
  • Attractive birch appearance complements the landscape.
  • Lightweight with easy installation
  • Long lasting vinyl/PVC cavity
  • Roof option of cedar or matching poly-lumber (recycled plastic)

    Gilbertson Birdhouse

    The birdhouse was very well made and easy to install. I think the pricing was reasonable, and the shipping was quick. Will definitely continue to buy these from this business.

    Bluebird/Tree Swallow house

    I received my birdhouses in a very timely manner. They are up and have bluebirds and swallows nesting. I have found that both species choose this style house over others. Gradually going to all Gilbertson boxes. House sparrows do not care for them.

    Bluebird house

    Super easy to put up But the bluebirds were not quick enough as a pair of chickadees are setting up house. It is ok though. They need a nesting place also. Only took maybe 3-4 days to find it.


    The Birdhouse Chick

    Real estate is scarce... bluebirds may likely evict your chickadees. Please off them a safe place to nest with 1-1/8" entry birdhouse meant for chickadees :)
