Many species of birds will nest in boxes or other structures that meet each species' requirements for a safe place to nurture eggs and nestlings. This guide provides the tools for launching a successful nesting structure project, starting with an overview of general types of nest structures, desirable design features of a nest box, and the best construction materials for purchased or build-your-own structures. Other sections survey common pests and predators and deterrence strategies, as well as best practices for nest structure placement. Included are profiles of 24 species native to North America.
