Bed and Breakfast for Small Birds

Bird house for small birds Nov 2017.jpg

 

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.
