Works for other birds in South AfricaI have had one for about three years. We put it under an overhanging roof over a verandah about 6 inches below the ceiling. roof, First birds to use it were familiar chats, who raised several broods. Then our local swallows, the lesser striped, built a roof and tunnel linking it to the ceiling, and raised a brood. This made it even more desirable real estate, and it has since been used again by the chats and twice by grey headed sparrows, as well as the swallows who were back at the beginning of our summer.

Overall, goodLooks well made, but my only concern is the poorly-fitted screws fixing the cup to the wood. They stick out, and I wouldn't want this to injure the birds. I can only screw them in a little more or I risk cracking the cup. By Beardy Sage, on 19 Sep 2013
