Farmer Man is building nest boxes for small birds. The opening is wide enough for our small birds — chickadees, tufted titmice, bluebirds, wrens — but not large enough for the house sparrow or other larger birds.
The diet for a small bird like a chickadee and tufted titmouse is 80-90% insects, spiders, ants, wasps, stink bugs, and caterpillars. And the acorns are the other 20%. Our yard is a regular smorgasbord for our visitors.
Our nest boxes are an open invitation to our fine Bed and Breakfast establishment —complete with an all-you-can-eat spider buffet.
