Well, beloved spouse Randy and I have mounted 2 nest boxes which Randy made in his work shop using the Art Gingert design. The boxes are beautiful, bulky and weigh between 12 and 15 pounds.
We were able to mount 1 box in an hour or so, and the other (the first one) took well over 6 hours. In both cases, we were mounting on trees.
I would love to learn how others are handling the mounting process. Our ladder has a 14 foot reach, and can be tricky to stabilize when placed against a tree. What tips and tricks have you used for mounting your nest boxes?
Thanks in advance.
