Box placement: Shaded areas in sparse woods, streamside forests, farmland, suburban backyards, and city parks. Avoid facing the nest box north. Face the entry hole east or south where possible, as the birds like to sit in the entranceway (even during the day) to soak up sunlight.
Nesting materials: Add a couple of inches of wood chips or dry leaves.
Mounting: Attach to straight trees wider than the box or install on posts or buildings.
Height: About 10 feet high.
