Is a next box the same as a bird house?
Nest boxes, also known as birdhouses, play a crucial role in providing shelter and a safe haven for birds to nest, lay eggs, and raise their young. These boxes mimic natural nesting sites, ensuring the well-being of various bird species. Our collection includes snuggle boxes, birch nest boxes, and innovative bee honeycomb nest boxes, each designed to cater to different bird preferences and nesting habits.
The best spot for a nest box
Placing a nest box in the right location is essential to attract and encourage nesting birds. Consider mounting the box at a height that is safe from predators, yet easily accessible for cleaning and monitoring. Facing the entrance away from prevailing winds and providing some shade during the hottest part of the day will ensure a comfortable environment for nesting birds. It's also advisable to position the box near a natural food source, such as trees or flowering plants.
