Spring Chickadee Preparing the Nest
Spring is here...let the nesting begin. I observed a male and female black-capped chickadee pair preparing their nest together. It was fun to watch. After doing a little research on "allaboutbirds", I read that the female picks the nest location and the male and female work together to hollow out a 21cm deep hole in the tree. The female will then build a cup-shaped nest. Chickadees are really cool little birds.
