A nest box, also spelled nestbox, is a man-made enclosure supplied for animals to nest in.
Nest boxes are most regularly used for birds, in which case they are also known as birdhouses or a birdbox/bird box, but some mammalian species may also use them.
Placing nestboxes or roosting boxes may also be utilised to help preserve populations of specific species in an area.
The nest box was invented by the British conservationist Charles Waterton
in the early 19th century to encourage more bird life and wildfowl on the nature reserve he set up on his estate.

The diameter of the opening in a nest-box has a extremely powerful impact on the varieties of birds that will use the box.
Numerous little birds select boxes with a hole only sufficient for an adult bird to pass through.
This may be an adaptation to avoid other birds from raiding it.

In European countries, an opening of 2.5 cm in diameter will catch the attention of the Marsh tit (Poecile palustris), Willow tit(Poecile montanus),an opening of 2.8 cm in diameter will appeal to the European pied flycatcher(Ficedula hypoleuca, an opening of 3 cm in diameter will attract Great tit (Parus major),Eurasian tree sparrow(Passer montanus),
and an opening of 3 cm in diameter will attract House sparrow (Passer domesticus).
