Mariton: Nest Building
by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager
Three bluebird pairs have finished building their nests. If you compare the photo from last week, you will see there is a lot more material. I don’t expect to find eggs next week, but I wouldn’t be surprised either.
Chickadees have also started building nests. This nest is almost finished. Chickadees and Titmouses both build their nests with moss. I believe this nest is a Chickadee’s, but should know for sure next week. There were two other boxes containing moss, so there may be two more pairs nesting soon.
