Many small wild bird species such as robins, wrens and flycatchers prefer an open style nesting site with easy access and concealed from the prying eyes of predators.
The Simon King Cabin design features both an open entrance door and a secluded nest space behind the sidewall. In addition to nesting, small birds may use the cabin as a shelter from harsh weather. In finding cover, they can save essential body fat, which aids their survival.
A metal frame gives the cabin strength, and the roof has a cosy liner. The rattan landing platform & low wall provides the divide between the entrance and roosting or nesting space.
Simon King says:
“I would position your Cabin Nester between half a metre and three metres high for most species, unless it is for spotted flycatchers which will need it a little higher still. You can position it in a shrub, a bush, up against a fence or an ivy-clad wall.”
