Some species that nest in bushes, on tree limbs and rock ledges will nest on wood platforms. Some species are more easily attracted to platforms than other species.

Platform dimensions, mounting heights, locations, habitat, and geographic regions are based on common corroborated observations made over the course of years by back yard and professional naturalists.

Platforms should be chosen and mounted with one or only a few species in mind. Pests and predators need to be detoured. Nesting materials need to be removed at appropriate intervals between nesting seasons and platforms should be disinfected to eliminate parasites and disease.

Pictured on this page are North American bird species that nest on platforms and ledges.
