How to Help
With the holiday season approaching rapidly, now is the time to select gifts that will
please your recipients, benefit wildlife and financially support FWF. The bird nesting boxes are
hand crafted pro bono for FWF from native Florida cypress by director Bob Taylor fit each of
these requirements. Bob has now constructed more than 600 of these boxes and several have
been shipped as far away as New England and to Washington State (and one to Sweden) where
they were readily accepted and used by local birds. Four sizes are available. The small is
designed for blue birds and other birds of similar size. The most popular size (medium) attracts
wood ducks, screech owls and kestrels, while the large size is designed to accommodate the
larger black bellied whistling ducks that are becoming increasingly common in the lakes and
ponds of south and central Florida. An extra large nesting box meant for barred owls can also
be made but only by special order and requires a month advance notice.
To make a donation to the Federation and to order your gift nesting boxes, please download and fill out
the order form here, or call the Federation office at 850-656-7113. The donation amounts
per box are $30, $60, $80 and $150 respectively for the several sizes plus the cost of shipping.
Bob can direct the shipments either to you or directly to your recipients. For those who want to contribute but do not have adequate space on your property, if you would like to donate a nest box to be placed in an appropriate location on public land in Central Florida by Bob Taylor, this is also an option.
