In dense urban environments, were there isn’t a lot of open space for habitat, pioneering urban ecologists have been constructing green walls of vegetation to serve as habitat and improve the air quality and thermal properties of the city. This week BirdLife Netherlands unveiled their own new green wall, complete with a Great Tit nesting box, as urban bird habitat at their offices in Zeist. Here’s a local Dutch news story with more picture of the wall and nest box (use Google translate to read it in English) .
