New Nest Box Plan

The newest nest box construction plan to be featured on our website is a nest box for Peregrine Falcons!

Peregrine Falcons normally nest on cliff ledges, but with the aid of nest boxes they are increasingly found nesting on urban structures such as buildings, churches, bridges, power plants, and stadiums. They are aggressive nest defenders, so this nest box is best placed high up on the roofs of buildings and skyscrapers, away from any place where people frequent (avoid balconies and maintenance areas). Thanks to Amy and Ken Ries of the Raptor Resource Project for working with us to make this design available! Download the plans for free here.
