Attraction of hollow nesting bird species to oak stands

Attraction of hollow nesting bird species to oak stands

Gorskostopanska Nauka 24(2): 55-59

Examination is conducted on the possibility of attracting the small insectivorous birds in the oak stands and on the factors which affect the percentage of settling of the artificial nests. The data show that in connection with the biological peculiarities of the titmouse and the tomtit, as well as from technical and economic considerations, optimal height of hanging up the artificial nests is about 2 m. The field sparrow, as aggressive and undesired rival for settling in the nests, may be limited by hanging up the artificial nests at a height of 1.5-2 m. It is established that the artificial nest placed in proximity of the outskirts of the forest, the roads, the clearings, the glades and others, with South-western enclosure, secure high percentage of settlement.
