We have a youtube playlist of these Great Crested Flycatchers in our nest box. I try to add a video every day. They have now been building their nest for 11 days, hoping for eggs soon!

Awesome pics and the video!
Hi Allyson, We’d love you to report on this nest officially as a NestWatch participant. You can upload photos of the nest material, including the snakeskin. We have an ongoing project right now that is investigating the benefits (or lack thereof) of using snakeskin as a nesting material. You can learn more here: https://nestwatch.org/connect/news/wanted-great-crested-flycatcher-nest-photos/
I have already added it on nestwatch 🙂 Not sure how to link to it here though.
This nest has TONS of snakeskin in it!!
Hi Allyson, There is an option on the data entry page to link photos to specific nest visits – Please upload the image there in order to attach it to the data in our database.
