Y (Kuma's owner)

Nearly a year ago, my husband made a bird nest box and hung it onto the tree in the backyard.

* Free Accommodations for Wild Birds [Sept.22, 2016]

Pale headed rosella

My husband and I were expecting that some birds were going to use it. I saw two Pale-headed Rosellas visit the nest box quite often but they have never used it. I saw them peeking into the nest box and noticed that the hole of the nest box is too small for them.

Next Box

The nest box is set on a branch high above the ground and it's not easy to replace it. Then, my husband decided to make the hole bigger without removing it from the branch. He grabbed a reciprocating saw and climbed the ladder. As you can see in the picture, it was quite high.

He made the hole bigger and added a small perch under the hole.

The renovation is done!


= The stylish nest box is for rent! =

One bedroom with high ceiling.

The entrance hole size is just a good enough size to go in and out, and there is a perch for supporting your kids when they leave the nest.

There is a beautiful forest and two water basins near the nest box and a human's house in front. Therefore, there is less chance of attack by aggressive ravens, and a safe place to raise your family.

The humans in the house keep cats but they are indoor cats and you don't have to worry about them.

No bond needed.

Available any time.
