What is a bird box and why is it important?
A bird box is a structure, usually made from wood, placed high in a tree to attract birds. It is also called a nest box or a bird house.
Birds like the bird box because it makes an excellent nesting site that protects their eggs.
A bird box is important because it helps to protect and conserve bird species by enabling them to breed in a safe location.
A bird box also encourages birds to remain in the region.
