If you have ever wondered which species of birds will use a nest box or other artificial nest site, then this guide is for you! It’s easy to make your own nest box but if you don’t have time or the skills there are also lots of nest box suppliers online such as here.
Artificial nest sites offer the perfect opportunity to add a wildlife camera as you know exactly where a bird is likely to nest. This enables you to set up the camera prior to the breeding season to maximise your chances of getting your footage correctly framed while minimising disturbance at the nest site.
For completeness, this table lists all species which are known to use artificial nest sites. However, some of these sites will require specialist equipment and will require considerable investment of materials and manpower. Feel free to contact me if you would like me to help on any projects you have planned.
