Male Pileated Woodpecker Working on Nest Cavity
This gorgeous fella has been working hard on this nest cavity over the past week or so, and we finally heard “tap tap tap” and caught him peeking out from the nest cavity while working hard on it. Enjoy a few clips we took of him peeking out, and also in another tree nearby.
Brown-Headed Nuthatch Nest Cavity Construction
This Brown-headed Nuthatch pair has been observed during the past month plus working on constructing a nest cavity in a Pine log fence post. The two frequently alternate, changing places between who is working on the cavity and who is keeping watch in the nearby Sweet Bay tree, and exchanges of feeding take place between the two (included in this video).
As a note: please pardon the initial shaking of the camera, as I finally got my tripod set up towards the end. While you will hear the calls of these birds, there are the sounds of other birds in the background, including our ducks and chickens.
