I hope these questions aren't too annoying. but I had some red-bellied woodpecker nesters in a partially dead pecan tree, but today I discovered a squirrel nesting at the very top of the cut off tree. (someone before I moved in cut off most of the top branches probably a home threat, it's very close to the house) any who, I haven't seen my woodpeckers or heard them in a day.. So I'm now looking at bird house options for the woodpeckers and possibly blue birds, wrens , etc. ..before I spend a lot of useless money, can someone inform me some best buys? I live in northwest Louisiana near a golf course and I can garden to accommodate birds. or just send a link to an article or past reference. thanks.
and... I was a reporter and reported on birds and what Jay said was true about editors. You'll write a story and they chop off inches and make it sound ridiculous!. when i wrote about subjects that i found were over my head i usually let my experts pre read, even though the norm for reporters is, no pre-reads. I also found that a ridiculous norm.
