After we evicted this flicker from our attic, he kept trying to get back in. At night, he clung to the side of our house, under the eaves. So I built him a home of his own. I used some 12″ redwood boards, salvaged from a shed next door that was built in the early 1900’s. We hung it in a tree a few feet away from our bedroom window. His entrance faces southeast. He moved in about 10 days after we installed it.
