A Proper Bird Box

If you put out a bird nest box and nobody moves in the first year, don't give up; you'll probably get takers the second nesting season. But here are four important points to consider:
  1. Make sure the nest box is made of untreated wood.
  2. Do not put a perch on it (so other birds aren't tempted to land there).
  3. Place the nest box in an area that is protected from wind, rain and full sun (chicks die if they get overheated).
  4. Make sure it doesn't contain any nesting materials (birds like to provide theri own).
Happy bird watching!
