Hi .do I put a perch on the front of my nestboxs. Please let me know .
Hi Tina is there a specific reason you need to put a perch on your nest boxes?
A lot of them don't have any perches (all mine don't) but if you want to put some on then all you need to do is drill a hole below the entrance hole and use something like an old branch or a bit of wooden dowel.
I'm not sure but I think a lot of nest boxes don't have perches because it stops other birds looking into them.
Think I might have read your question wrong.
Are you asking if you need to put perches on them?
AlanThink I might have read your question wrong.
I was wondering why you would need to put a small fish on the front.!! ;-)
Seriously though, I wouldn't personally put a perch on a nestbox. As Alan says, it allows larger birds to more easily predate the nest.
Hi Alan thanks for letting me know. From Tina smith
