    Very cool video. I like how you can see the shed snakeskin in the nest when she lifts up to ward off the woodpecker.

    This nest has tons of snakeskin – on my youtube channel there are lots of videos of them building the nest and adding snakeskin. 🙂 Check under playlists for the full playlist.

    Mama has been adding more nesting material the past two days. Mostly feathers. We expect the eggs to start hatching tomorrow!
