On April 21 the BC Chickadee started building a nest in the Bluebird box. I keep looking but only see lots of nesting material. My husband says he sees an eye/eyes. Look where the piece of straw is hanging down on the right as you look at the pics. Do I have hatchlings? I read chickadees “cover up” the hatchlings when leaving the nest to protect them from predators and to keep the eggs from cooling off.
Yes, that’s a chickadee nest. Sadly, I cannot see the babies in the photo. Where actually are they?
Maybe they aren’t any in there or are hidden under all that fluff!
