Certain birds in nature will look for enclosed structures to nest and raise their young. Birds that are cavity-nesters are birds that look for a dwelling that is completely enclosed on all sides. An enclosed environment is the only way they will raise their young from fledgling to adulthood. Yet, ther birds need a partially enclosed structure, or combination house platform.
Sparrows, finch, wrens, bluebirds, chickadees are some examples of birds that may choose an enclosed structure to live in. Dove and robins will need a platform with an open view on either one side or more sides before they build their nest and lay eggs. Taking time to make the best decision will result in the best design for promoting bird life in your area.

A nestbox is a man-made structure that is intended to provide animals a place to nest in. Nestboxes range in size to accommodate various categories of wildlife. There are many animals that will choose a nestbox to build a nest and raise their young. Man-made nestboxes are largely intended for birds because birds are generally the most skilled nest-builders, even though not all species of birds build nests.
Animals of the avian type are not the only nest-builders in the animal kingdom. Nest-builders are included in all six of the basic animal groups - mammals, amphibians, fish, birds, invertebrates and reptiles. Not all nests look the same, in fact, nests sometimes range vastly in style, shape material and function.
