Woodcrafting for Wildlife
Please note this book is now out of print, when our supply is gone....they are gone.
Building houses to proper specifications, placing them in "best" habitat, and maintaining the houses regularly can benefit both birds and mammals. However, if not built and placed properly, there may not be any visitors at all.
Nearly twenty different wildlife experts and six conservation organizations contributed to this third edition of Woodcrafting for Wildlife. Included are plans, habitat descriptions, and general background information for thirty-four different birds and mammals. Designs have been revised to speed assembly. The publication is centered on Pennsylvania and benefits the Pennsylvania Wild Resource Conservation Fund.
The book contains plans for a highly successful seven chamber bat box and also a three chamber bat box. These plans are similar to the successful boxes sold at BCM, with BCM's primary upgrades being the removable baffles, double-thick box sides, and faster kit assembly. This book does not specialize in bats. If bats are your primary focus, we suggest BCM's Building a Better Bat House which contains much more specific detail.
