BM Birdhouse Can Be Easily Populated By Following Some Design Alterations!!!

After the short inspection works inside a BH located somewhere in the middle of Bukit Mertajam town I have sketched how the BH layout was.

I told the owner that his BH should or can be with more nests if the BH configuration allows lesser light into the nesting room.

His external sound system was downed and there was no proper tweeters on the top entrance areas.

The number of internal sound tweeters were okay and well located.

He should have installed more fake nests since nearly 45-50% of the fake nests installed were with tenants.

What I came out with was how to minimize those light entering the nesting rooms.

First he need to reduce the size of the connecting door between the roving area and the nesting room.

He should also apply some black paint on a few walls.

As for the nesting rooms he should have install two partitions and create VIP rooms at the ends of the room.

One at the front and the other at the back.

Their doors must be facing each other in a straight line.

It should look something like this:

If he wanted to lure more tenants he should increase the number of fake nests.

Knowing where and how to install them will help a lot.

I also recommended him the NKS (nest kick start) method to secure all those birds that are currently erecting their new nests.

I saw a number of fresh markings on a number of places and he should give them a helping hand.

You can assist them to quickly erect their nests and lay their first egg.

The moment they laid one egg they will be yours forever (until they die).

Many BH owners leave everything to those birds and will not lift their finger to help these wild birds.

As for me always says that those wild birds needs our help and we should do our best to make them comfortable and built their nests as quick as possible.

Most of these new comers are very young with no previous experiences in building their nests.

Their saliva glands are not used to produce a lot of those white liquid.  

They need those fake nests to quickly start their nests and lay the eggs.

Show to them that you care and install those fake nests when you see those fresh markings on the nesting planks.

The moment you do that you will see the nests ready with eggs during your next visit.

Trust me on this advise.
