Based in Portland, ME, Coveside Conservation is a leading manufacturer of wooden nesting boxes (bird houses), bird feeders, bat houses and other backyard nature products and accessories.
Coveside specializes in backyard birding products that are practical, successful and always decorative.
When selecting a suitable nesting site, each bird species has unique requirements about the dimensions, including the height, depth, width and the entrance hole. Coveside prides itself on offering a nesting box that is suited to every species of cavity-nesting bird in North America, from bluebirds to chickadees, to owls, to purple martins.
Coveside's nesting boxes are carefully designed and constructed to include appropriate ventilation and drainage. Too much air movement can cause drafts but not enough can result in disease.
Because Coveside's products are handcrafted in Maine from Eastern white pine, they can come in a variety of wood finishes, from Down East rustic to beautiful polished and highly decorative sheens.
Coveside bird feeders can be mounted on posts and poles or hung from trees or even fitted into windows. The one-way mirror feeder that sits in a window brings the birds into the kitchen and is one of their most popular models.
Coveside has a diverse offering of nature related products and accessories, including multi-chamber bat houses, squirrel houses and butterfly houses, the designs for which are all attributed to field experts. For example, Coveside’s Sunshine Bat House was developed by Amanda Lollar, an internationally recognized authority on bat behavior and director of Bat World, a sanctuary in Mineral Wells, Texas.
