Nistkasten hängt in Baum

Welche Nisthilfen sind die Richtigen?

Welches Vogelhaus für welchen Vogel? Jede Art hat unterschiedliche Ansprüche. Grundsätzlich lässt sich unterscheiden in Vogelarten, die im freien brüten. Sogenannte Freibrüter bauen Nester in Hecken und Bäume oder am Ufer. Sie benötigen keine Höhle. Dazu gehören beispielsweise Buchfinken, Rotkehlchen, Stockenten, Störche.

Und dann gibt es die sogenannten Höhlenbrüter. Vögel, die in Höhlungen mit einem Einflugloch ihr Nest bauen, und damit anders vor Fressfeinden geschützt sind.

Und unter den Höhlenbrütern haben unterschiedliche Vogelarten unterschiedliche Ansprüche an der Beschaffenheit und Größe des Einfluglochs von einem Vogelhaus. 

Der Waldkauz zum Beispiel hat durch seine Körpergröße einen anderen Platzbedarf als ein Zaunkönig mit durchschnittlich 11 Zentimetern Körperlänge. Kleiber passen das Loch auf ihre Körpergröße an, indem sie es mit einem Lehm-Speichel-Gemisch versehen.

Wir sind Verfechter von einem Flugloch, das oval ist. Diese Form unterstützt die meisten Gartenvögel, wie Blaumeise, Kohlmeisen, und dabei auch seltenere Arten, wie den Gartenrotschwanz und Trauerschnäpper. Oval hat den Vorteil, dass die weit verbreiteten Stare keinen Zugang zur Höhle haben.


Jedem Vogel seine Nisthöhle - verschiedene Hersteller schaffen Vielfalt

Es gibt auf dem Nistkastenmarkt verschiedene Hersteller. Einer der Bekanntesten ist Schwegler. Der Nistkastenbauer ist seit langem im Geschäft und baut die Höhlen für Gartenvögel aus Holzbeton. 

Ein weiterer Hersteller ist die Firma vivara. Darüberhinaus gibt es noch kleinere Hersteller deren Produkte als künstliche Höhlen aus Holz zum Einsatz kommen, um die Singvögel zu schützen.

Hängen Sie eine Nisthöhle oder ein Vogelhaus auf und unterstützen Sie damit viele Vögel bei der Suche nach einem passenden Quartier. Schaffen Sie passende Angebote und Nistplätze.
