Yes Spring was in the air and birds began building their nests everywhere. The birds happy and busy flying to and frow looking for nesting material.
I happened to be setting up my camera and tripod. When I noticed this chickadee hanging around one of my old maple trees that I tap for making maple syrup.
He was going in and out of a hole in the tree. I thought this is great, maybe he’s making a nest in there. He’d go in and stay there for quite some time. When he finally pocked his head out, with a beak full of tree shavings. How interesting, I had no idea they used the inside of tree pulp for nesting.
One day I”ll find a chickadee nest to photograph, I’d love to see their little eggs at a birds eye view.
