Flicker box update

Last year, I did some research online to try to find a solution for our persistent flickers that wanted to winter inside our cottage, which ended up with us creating this flicker box.

We checked on the box, and discovered something had nested on top of it…

But after sticking the camera into the opening… something nested inside too! After a quick search, the feathers are consistent with flickers (although for a moment we thought they were owls and we got super excited).


As much fun as it is to know that our plan worked, something else drilled a hole through the garage… probably another flicker – but at least we know the nesting boxes work! Maybe we’ll try a few owl boxes this year too!
