Watch this video of my flickers at their nest box.
This pair of flickers appears to have adopted this nest box as their home. First you will see the male drumming on the roof. Later the female appears from within the box. I believe the male drumming on the roof is announcing his territory. The flickers moving into this nest box would not have been possible if I didn't trap starling. Starlings are an introduced species that competes with flickers for nest sites. For more information on starling control go to http://www.kansasnativeplants.com/yard_birds_europeanstarling.php
