Somewhere on this forum there was a discussion regarding a log that you put up for the barbet to nest in.


:o0ps: :o0ps: I can't find it. 0*\


I have now bought myself a log and would like to place it in the correct direction, height, and what do I put inside it -O-


Please help if you can. O0

Hi Amoli,

This was a comment from SM a few months back:
Super Mongoose wrote:You can buy the logs from a garden nursery for around R55 to R75 depending on the size. We capped it with an old coffee can so it woun't rot from the rain. The whole must face South East. The log comes with only a shallow hole and the barbet does the rest, it only takes them a couple of days to excavate the whole nest.
And then another discussion on the Barbet - Bird of the month thead. \O
