This built-in stone is ideal as a nesting site for house sparrows, but ring sparrows and tits also use it. This recessed brick can be used in renovation projects.

This built-in nesting box is suitable to compensate for house sparrow nest sites in the facade.

Due to its maximum depth dimension of 160 mm, it also fits into existing construction, allowing it to be used for renovation or post-insulation. The height of this recessed stone fits perfectly into 4 layers of waal format. Sparrows live in colonies so placing several built-ins together is recommended. The built-in nest box is also regularly inhabited by other species such as tits.

This built-in nest box is made of FSC wood concrete and can be opened at the front for cleaning if desired.

  • Build the built-in nest box horizontally with the front side flush with the facade. Preferably several together with a minimum horizontal and vertical spacing of 50 cm.
  • Where possible, build built-in cabinets high up and under the eaves. If that is not possible then build in at least 3 meters high in the facade.
  • Do not build in cabinets directly over doors or windows.
  • Facades between north and east are preferred. A different wind direction is also possible (for example, directly under the roof overhang). Do not build the stays where there is full sun all day and not on southwest facades because of rain intrusion.

This built-in nest box can be cleaned. To do this, remove the door from the cabinet by unscrewing the screw at the top and twisting the bottom screw hook. Now the old nest can be removed. The best time to clean is well after the breeding season starting in October. The sparrows will continue to use the built-in boxes during the winter months and may even then provide nesting material again. Breeding will not resume until April.
