John’s purple martin birdhouse reminded me of this birdhouse feeder that I built sever years ago. It is a model of our log barn. The feeder is on one end and the nesting is separate and on the end. I made it for finches with a small access hole for the nesting area. However, a woodpecker enlarged the hole for their own purposes! The feeder part is accessed through what is the stall doors on our actual barn.

Very nice and I especially like the 3rd picture that shows how it compares to the log barn.

That is a nice birdfeeder. But the woodpecker just goes to show you have a hard time getting good tenets. :)

Thanks for the post.

Very nice work Tom , as soon as i saw your feeder it reminded me of my birdhouses .lol
I,m surprised that a woodpecker would do that . I have woodpeckers but they are too busy killing my trees .

Good design. Looks like a really neat birdhouse/feeder. Surprised that a bird would build a nest with all the traffic that the feeder must generate. Have you had any inhabitants (in the nest) yet?
