pair of White-breasted nuthatches - at nesting box

This pair of nuthatches checked out this bluebird box earlier this month, then later started a nest. It's one of our newer boxes in our front yard. They are cavity nesters and treat the box as an extension of the tree trunk. Don't know that we've ever had nuthatches in one of our bird houses. Oddly, neither the bluebirds nor chickadees have started a nest yet.

 

Happy Feathery Friday!

 

p.s. saw a foty Falcate orangetip yesterday
