Nest boxes .: CW69-4/89-1991E-PDF ; CW66-48/1991E-PDF

"In Canada, about 50 species of birds, ranging in size from wrens to ducks, nest in cavities. Normally, woodpeckers and chickadees excavate these cavities in decayed trees or stumps. These birds make new holes each year, leaving the old ones for other cavity-nesting birds. Natural nest sites disappear as weakened or dying trees are removed from our forests for economic and safety reasons. As a result, there is intense competition for nest holes, with declines occurring in local populations of cavity-nesting species in recent years. By providing nest boxes in appropriate areas, we can help reverse this trend"--p. [2].
