Some explanations :
This nest can be made with plywood falls but also with oak, beech, pine or fir tree.
The measures are given as an indication and can be modified according to the thickness of the wood you're using.
The nest will be fixed 3 meter from the ground and the hole from which the bird takes off, will be directed towards the south or south east.
Fixing will be done on a branch using the closed hook, which will be attached to the center of the roof. (pay attention to the center of gravity)
According to the birds which fly around your garden, the diameter of the hole can vary : 28 mm for the blue tits and 32 mm for the red-tails.
Start your installation at the beginning of spring, so that you'll have time to varnish and let it dry and the birds will get accustomed to their new environment.
To make your nest more accessible, decorate by fixing pieces of barks on it !
