David Gwin of Texas has modified the traditional Peterson box design for experimental use on his trail.
This box has a 5"x5" floor, and the drop from the bottom of the hole to the floor is about 8", which makes it resistant to avian and mammalian predation. The larger floor will accommodate birds that need more space, such as flycatchers, woodpeckers, and Western Bluebirds.
