Tips for mounting your nest box:
- If you make more than one, don’t place them too close together
- Aim to place the box in a place protected from wind and harsh sunlight
- Robin houses should be place near the ground and covered by plants or vegetation
- Boxes for other types of birds should be located as high as possible, to protect the birds from predators.
