The hide and the pool are made from, as much as possible, natural materials, as to fit in to the environment best and for the birds to get used to it easily. The whole photography process may take several hours or even several days. Additionally, an info board is planned near the photography hide, which would clarify the birdwatching facility and educate about important bird species found in Ćemovsko field. The board can be made of timber in a simple style, while the print for the board will be provided by EnvPro.

Regarding birdhouses, they will be constructed for the European roller, and 30 birdhouses are planned. A birdhouse model will be available to the contractor during construction, if necessary. The timber for making the birdhouses should be like a yew tree, with the possibility of withstanding external conditions such as rain, humidity, etc.

The project is supported under the Regional program on local democracy on the Western Balkans - ReLOaD. The program is financed by the EU, and implemented by the United nations development program (UNDP).
