    two of my nest boxes are also pine, but they can be built out of just about any wood you have around. I made one for my bantams out of a cat litter bucket, and others have made them out of everything from 5 gallon buckets to old drawers.

    Pine sides and plywood bottom.

    Use whatever wood you have available. The birds don't care since they can't eat it. [​IMG]
