Like most birds, a finch will build its nest on barbed wire in a location that will keep it safe from potential predators. Finches will often build finch nests in natural or artificial cavities. It can include old woodpecker holes, hanging plants and birdhouses, depending on the design.
The finch nests themselves are built in the shape of a cup. They use twigs, grass, leaves, small roots and feathers as a bed. Males will generally bring in the nesting materials while females actually construct the finch nest.
