Picking your brains on a Friday afternoon,
Thank you to everyone who assisted us with our nest box design.
We now have 6 musk lorikeet and 8 rainbow lorikeet boxes ready to go up in our eucalypts around the Wesley College campus, here in Glen Waverley, Melbourne.
One small additional question. We have constructed them from a mix of pine fence palings and marine ply (10mm thick).  Fairly weighty as they are, what is the most secure, yet tree friendly and simple way to mount them ?
Note for those uncertain of positioning :  Rainbow Lorikeet boxes are to be on a 45 deghree angle with the musks upright.  Boxes are 8ocm in depth.
Cheers for now,
What is the best way to attach these rather
