This model nesting box is divided into two nesting spaces. This offers the partner a place to spend the night. Moreover, the different spaces allow sparrows to start a second brood when the first brood has not yet fledged. The nest box cannot be seen as double compensation. This hive only compensates for one breeding pair.

The nest box is also eagerly used by (cabbage) tits, for example.

This cabinet is made of FSC wood concrete making it very long lasting. Placement is easily possible using the included Z-hook and stainless steel screws.

The nest box meets all the requirements of the Bij12 House Sparrow Knowledge Document.


  • Preferably place the nest box with several together with a minimum horizontal and vertical spacing of 50 cm.
  • The boxes may be used in all wind directions as long as the entrance opening does not face southwest and the nest box does not hang in sunlight all day. Ideal spots are directly under gutters or overhangs and otherwise at least 3 meters in height.
  • Do not add nesting material.
  • Hanging the cabinet is easy with the included fasteners. First, place the so-called Z-hook in the desired location. Then place the nesting box over the hook. The cabinet can be additionally secured to the wall with the included plug and screw.

If desired, the hive can be cleaned after the breeding season (preferably during the winter months). To do this, unscrew the cabinet from the wall and take it off the hook. The opening at the back of the cabinet allows the inside to be cleaned.
