John Lichty kindly made four nest boxes to be installed at SpruceHaven in the hope of inducing Black-capped Chickadees Poecile atricpillus to take up residence in them. I have little doubt that we will see all of them occupied by about the middle of next month.
These small boxes are much easier to mount than the larger boxes already installed with Eastern Screech Owls Megascops asio in mind and they were installed in short order.

The warm spell continues unabated and more and more species are arriving. Perhaps today I'll see a Killdeer Charadrius vociferus!
