  1. Provide artificial nesting sites for songbirds

    A replicated study in tropical forest in Kanungu District, Uganda (Perrins 1997), found that two or three nest boxes provided in March-April 1996 were used by stripe-breasted tits Parus fasciiventer for nesting, hatching one or two chicks each. Fledging success was unknown and no boxes were used in 1997. Boxes were wooden, 30 cm deep and attached 3-10 m up in trees.
