Brown-headed Nuthatches are nesting in this box. This box is for Brown-headed Nuthatches because it has a smaller opening.Carolina Chickadees have starting building a nest in this Brown-headed Nuthatch nest box. They are small enough to fit.
The Bluebirds have grown a lot over the last 2 weeks. They are about ready to fledge.
In the past 3 days the Bluebirds have grown fur!
Mama Brown-Headed Nuthatch has tucked the babies in so I can’t see them as well.
The babies grow so much in just a couple days!
You can even see their tiny feet!
I finally have Bluebirds nesting in my Bluebird box!
And there are five Brown-Headed Nuthatch eggs in my other Bluebird box!
I took this picture three days ago of the seven baby Titmice and since then there are only three left in the birdhouse!
I checked in on the baby Chickadees yesterday afternoon and there were only three left.
I checked again in the evening and they all fledged!
The baby Titmice have grown a little bit.
I have been away for five days at the New River Birding and Nature Festival. (I will be posting pictures from that.) Before I left, the Titmouse laid seven eggs. I got home today and peeked in on them. They hatched!
I peeked in on the baby Chickadees and they have grown quite a bit!
All five Chickadee eggs have hatched and they are growing very fast!

Mom Titmouse was very upset and all in a fluff when I peeked in on her and her eggs!
