I am a birder living in Chengdu and would like to support the local avifauna with nestboxes in the outskirts of Chengdu.
Unfortunately I couldn't find any data on adequate dimension and hole size in correlation with certain bird species. Birds I am focusing on are:
Oriental Magpie Robin, Black Drongo, Crested Myna, Silky Starling, etc.

In the West there's unlimited data on nestboxes available (you even can buy various sized boxes in many supermarkets). However those data mostly fit western birds (Robin, Starling, Great Tit, Blue Tit).

Anybody able to help out with some advice?

Thanks in advance 謝謝
