"I'd be inclined to put up the bat house. 1st: Your day/night thinking is generally true. However, in my limited experience, even when there were day-hunting bats the different species don't seem to conflict. 2nd: Given the…"

Would a bat house infringe upon Tree Swallows?

Would welcome feed back regarding installing a bat house and if this would infringe upon the food source of the tree swallows. I am thinking one feeds after dark while the other feeds during daylight. Others than that, my knowledge is limited.  We have enjoyed having the tree swallows for a number of years now and certainly do not wish to hinder their existence in the neighbourhood.See More

"Hi Marilyn, My recommendation is to let the swallows decide where to nest. If they aren't capable of choosing appropriate nest sites and defending against natural predators, then they lack the genetics required for survival. This might sound…"

Tree Swallow survival rate(?)

Wondering what the survival rate is for the tree swallows because it is the second year that a hawk has killed the tree swallows in the City of Moncton. Also, what if we refrain from installing the nest boxes next year - and if the swallows would have a better chance to survive elsewhere?Hoping for experienced advise because ours is limited.Thank you.Marilyn Guisset.See More

RALPH ELDRIDGE replied to Marilyn Guisset's discussion Woodpecker Question
"My bet would be that you nailed it with Downy Woodpeckers. Red-cockaded Woodpeckers are "rare and very local", with a very restricted range and habitat far from here. It would be exceptional to get one mega-rarity but two would be…"

"Male Downy and Hairy [a larger Woodpecker similar to Downy] Woodpeckers have red on the back of their heads, females do not have any red. We don't have Red-cockaded Woodpeckers in NB."

Woodpecker Question

Just saw two small black and white woodpeckers - about the size of Downy Woodpecker.  Wondering what kind they are.Is it possible that the black and white woodpeckers are Red-cockaded woodpeckers? (Not sure why the red in in the title as the picture in the bird book lacks red).  However, the picture is the closest to the woodpeckers seen.  (Next, I will take a photo of them.)See More
