What would be the best wood to use to build a house for a
And what kind of habits do these birds have?
I have never heard of crested flycatchers using artificial nest boxes, but
one of my books says it is possible since they do nest in cavities. I don't
think the type of wood would make much difference. They usually nest high in
trees though, in woods or open woodland areas like parks. Despite their name
they eat a lot of berries and even some small animals as well as insects,
which they get from both high in trees and closer to the ground.
