[Tweeters] Flicker Question

Hi Tweets,

After posting the question about how to deal with flickers tapping on
houses, we decided to try both suggestions. We will put up a roosting site
according to Wilson Cady's design, as well as a nest box nearby.
Installing a nest box prompted an additional question: How to prevent
starlings from taking over the box? The possible answer came from the
folks at Wild Birds Unlimited in Burien. Nail popsicle sticks or tongue
depressors over the opening to deter the starlings but allow the flickers
to move in.

Since I have seen both a male and female flicker at the suet, I think a
nest is possible. We shall see.
