Mariton: It’s Started
by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager
Nesting activity has begun. Last week, this box had some moss and I expected to find a Chickadee nest this week. Instead, I found Bluebirds had almost completed a nest.
The nest above is almost complete. It is probably a Chickadee nest (Chickadees have used this box before). But I won’t know for sure until next week, as Tufted Titmice nests look very similar.
If you haven’t cleaned your nest boxes yet, you still have time – but you need to do it soon.
