NOTE on White Giant Hood: We have been doing some tests painting the outside of the box white and the internal temperature does seem to be a good deal lower. We tried painting the outside of the box with a high-end primer and then white latex paint and the paint bonds well with the coroplast. We set a black and white box outside on a hot day and it was 96.4F inside the black box and 83.8F inside the white box. 12.6 degrees difference! Obviously the falconer would not set either box out in the sun with a hawk in it but we needed to know the difference on a hot day. These boxes are now made in white.
If the falconer has a darker colored giant hood they can acquire Krylon plastic spray paint and paint the outside of the giant hood. The surface should be clean and lightly scuffed with light sandpaper prior to spraying the box. We have seen that this works to lower the temperature also.
Dimensions: 12"W x 24"H x 24"D (external)
The Western Sporting Hawk Box is made using 4mm black Coroplast. This material has been used for many years to make hawk boxes because it is durable, light-weight, easy to clean, and easy on feathers. Each box is professionally cut and creased. These hawk boxes will last for many seasons with a minimal amount of cleaning and care.

A 2400 rpm, 25 dB ventilation fan is included with each Coroplast Hawk Box, creating a gentle flow of fresh air for the hawk. The ventilation fans are wired with a multi-function switch and can operate on either AA battery power, a wall adapter (included), or with a cigarette lighter adapter in a vehicle. See the accessories in related products below. Simply flip the switch and control which power source the fan uses. Each fan unit comes pre-assembled and is easy to install during box assembly.
Internal Digital Thermometer
A thermometer is mounted in each box that has an easy to read digital display showing the internal temperature in degrees Fahrenheit for the inside of the box at all times
Note: Do not leave any raptor inside a hawk box while it is in direct sunlight or in poorly ventilated conditions, especially around car exhaust.
Requires 8 AA batteries. Batteries not included. We recommend the purchase of high-quality rechargeable batteries for use with the ventilation fan. Regular AA batteries with 350 mAh capacity will run the ventilation fan for approximately 15 hours.
