I like the outcome for both your projects. The flicker house is something I think I might have to add here after all. I have a need to foil those starlings. gail


Kathleen girl I always learn more about birds with your posts , thanks !
It has been so cold here .. and dry so you know that isn't good for the plants that peeked up from the soil .. fingers crossed things will be alright though .. are you moving the passionflower vine to another site or leaving it where it is ? .. I am so curious to see if mine survived and if so , will it throw more than one flower ?? LOL


Now all the birdies should be happy. Love your fancy raised bed with finials. Very nice.


I hope you have a family of flickers move in soon. That is a fabulous idea to keep the starlings out of the nest box.


I've never seen a box like that. I'm thinking maybe we'll put one way up on our Pine tree next year. I hope the Flicker returns to nest inside yours.
Your triangles fit perfectly!

I really hate both Starlings and House Sparrows, since they are non-native and so aggressive. I hope the Flickers use the new box and the Starlings are thwarted!

What an ingenious solution. I do hope it works. I have only one Starling that visits my bird feeder occasionally...hopefully no more decide to visit. I look forward to hearing if your new flicker home keeps the starlings out :-)


I saw one of those boxes with the plexiglass panel on the GW birding forum last year. I never did hear if the lady who bought it had any success. She was trying for any type of woodpecker. Good luck!
