Tips to Encourage Birds to Nest in your Birdhouse:

Hollows of trees are the natural habitat for many species of fauna. In the absence of hollow bearing trees a Bird Roosting Pocket or a Small Bird Nesting Box can introduce a hollow to your garden to attract both birds and mammals. Whether a bird or other animal decides to visit your Bird Roosting Pocket depends on a variety of considerations. Here is some information and suggestions.

  • Animals will not forage too far from safety, so Bird Roosting Pockets should not be too far from food sources
  • We recommend not feeding wild animals and birds unless you have knowledge of the food that suits
  • Bird Roosting Pockets should be hung at least 3m from the ground, out of reach of dogs, cats and also humans
  • Place in an inconspicuous position, protected from the weather (cold, rain, direct heat from sun)
  • You can tell if a bird is nesting as you will see some signs such as extra twigs or debris
  • Avoid looking in the box, as it could lead to desertion
  • The Bird Roosting Pocket entrance holes are around 5 -7cm to suit smaller birds such as small parrots, lorikeets, tree martins, rufous treekeeper and owlet nightjar
  • Natural nest predators may prey but this is part of building up an ecosystem
