This nesting box is suitable for house sparrows, but it can also be inhabited by field sparrows and tits. The nest box can be attached to facades or, in the case of new buildings or building renovations, built into the wall of the house.
House sparrows also breed in colonies, so several stones can be installed together.
The nest box (screws included) should preferably be mounted on a facade under the edge of the roof or gutter. It can also be mounted freely on a wall, at least 3m high. When installed in a cavity wall, the thermal insulation should run behind the wall. If you need to remove heat insulation, cut it generously around the box. In this case, fill the space behind the box with hard insulation material. The box should not hang in the sun all day. Nesting material is not required.
Clean the nesting box once a year, after the young birds have fled. To do this, turn the screw hook at the bottom by 180 degrees, the front can then be removed. If the nest has a second brood, the nesting box must be cleaned after they have fledged.
