I have a birdbox which attaches to my window with rubber suckers, so that I can watch any nesting activities in a big brother stylee.
Today, thanks to the harsh conditions often experienced during a British summer, the rubber proved to have perished and the box fell off it's perch. The box was empty
when it fell, but I'll never be able to relax watching a young family inside my box, now that I know of its precarious nature.
My new improved birdbox would have a powerful magnet on either side wall, and I'd place two magnets on the other side of my window ensuring the box stays in place.
who needs nesting boxes?

||wow, and you could move it around too, like those magnetic window cleaners.
||Off topic but relating to birds, windows and magnets:
I once bought for a friend a hummingbird ornament which was in two pieces with a magnet on each piece. One half was to be placed outside a window and the other half directly opposite the first, on the inside of the window. It looks like the humming bird is passing through the glass.
