A surprising nest

Chickadee Excavation - 2013 © Christopher Martin

In front of the patio to the front door of my house there is a stump where the previous owners had cut down what must have been a large tree.  Aside from the occasional decoration, this trunk remains largely unused by us.  However, we all like it so there it stays.  Now, I understand why… today a pair of Boreal Chickadees started to dig out their hollow to make their nest.  They carried out small clumps of wood pulp clawed out on every trip.  I hope they choose to stay here.

    I hope so too – I’d like to see more photographs of it. And maybe its family! 🙂
