Coveside Northern Flicker House

The Northern Flicker includes five subspecies: Yellow-shafted Flicker, Red-shafted Flicker, Gilded Flicker, Guatemalan Flicker and Cuban Flicker. The three subspecies found on the North American continent are Yellow-shafted (east of the Rocky Mountains), the Red-shafted (west of the Rocky Mountains) and the Gilded (in the Southwest).

Flickers live in a variety of woodland habitats. They have adapted well to human habitation and occur in urban, suburban, and rural areas, in parks, and near farms and woodlots. They nest near clearings or other open areas, at forest edges, and in forests interspersed with meadows, fields, and clear-cuts. Nests are also found in savannas and near swamps, ponds, and recently flooded areas.

The Northern Flicker will nest in boxes, but boxes should be packed tightly with sawdust for the birds to excavate. The more closely the nest box imitates a "punky" tree, the more desirable it will appear to Northern Flickers. This Coveside Northern Flicker House comes with wood chips and a slate predator guard to keep squirrels from enlarging the entrance hole. Flicker houses should be mounted 6 to 30 feet high with the entrance hole facing southeast.

Dimensions: 17-3/4" high x 9-1/4" wide x 11" deep
