Nesting boxes

I’ve decided that I should make some nesting boxes to put up in the bush at home. I like the idea of using a hollow log but it’s important to leave logs in the bush for ground dwelling animal habitat.

Useful information and design ideas for nesting boxes I have learnt that it’s a good idea to thread the wire through a piece of garden hose to help protect the tree and to put some loops in the wire for extension as the tree grows. Placing the box at a height of 5 meters or less will attract most species, position the box so that the hollow is protected from the prevailing weather.
