Lovely photo

do you know where I can find stats on birds beak lengths, widths etc. I'm making some feeders and want to make sure the holes are big enough for some birds and too small for others, like parakeets! Thanks

RSPB and BTO might help

If you look at the bird identifier it has some general stats and the advice section
http://www.rspb.org.uk/advice/helpingbirds/feeding/how.aspx
has some guidance.

Not beak length but I'm sure either would help if you contacted them.
