Description

I found this nest accidentally while filling up my bird feeders! Saw the female slip inside this teeny tiny hole, about 1 1/12 inch wide, and had to peer inside! Nest seems fully completed, but no eggs yet!
This nest is about 7 feet off the ground, inside a dead tree cavity. I am not sure if there was a previous nest here or not. Definitely looking forward to watching this pair, as I’m a Chickadee lover!
~Take care, Kat
