Many small wild bird species such as Robins and wrens prefer an open style nesting site with easy access, but also concealed from the prying eyes of predators.
The Simon King Cabin design features both an open entrance door and secluded nest space behind the side wall. In addition to nesting, small birds may use the cabin as a shelter from harsh weather. In finding cover they are able to save essential body fat which aids their survival.
A metal frame gives the cabin strength and the roof has a cosy liner. The rattan landing platform & low wall provides the divide between entrance and roosting or nesting space.
