My hobby of making nesting boxes began when my partner and I, moved to our home in a street with some big trees. I made a box from old fence pickets and put it in a tree in our garden. Amazingly, a southern boobook owl was soon raising babies in it. Eager for more bird action, I improved my bird box design and produced different sizes for different birds. I then installed them around our property, also donated many around the neighbourhood and we realised the occupancy rate was 100 per cent. Once the birds find my box, competition is fierce.
