Bluebird box April 10

I thought this week we would have the answer to Bluebird or Chickadee. But no. Now as you can see in the photo there is the pine straw of the bluebirds on the bottom, then there is the moss of the chickadees and now we have twigs from Carolina wrens. It will be interesting to see who lays eggs.

bluebird box 2

As you can see in the photo, this box is stuffed full of nesting materials. It was very hard to see in the nest to see if there were any eggs. I didn’t see any yet though. It looks like the Carolina wren has won rights to the box this time, partially by the fact that there is just no more room to put anything else in the box!
