Description

Scrub-jays figured out how to get the eggs in my old eavebox design so I built a new one that is jay-proof and so far it works. Can’t wait till the finches eggs hatch.

    Interesting design! Would you be willing to share the plans with us? Fingers crossed they are successful!

  2. Ethan says:

    I don’t have any plans for the eavebox right now because I made it out of random wood scraps I had. I can once the birds fledge, take the box down and write down the plans/dimensions for it on a piece of paper. And email it or post a picture of it once it’s done.

    Thanks, Ethan. While House Finches don’t technically need a box, I’m sure there are many people who would like to offer them a safer place to nest, especially with predatory birds figuring out the commonly-used places. You can email us any details at nestwatch@cornell.edu. Cheers!
