A pleasant little discovery
Posted by: DP
Date: May 22, 2020 07:53AM
In the grand scheme of things it's small but I got a smile out of it.

I have a Wren birdhouse that has been used every year for quite a few years now and I saw one fly in the other day. But it didn't seem right...



...because the tail on this bird is too long for a Wren. I wait till it comes back out and...





...it's a Black-capped Chickadee! I have never seen a Chickadee nest before and because they are small birds they have no issue fitting in the opening of a birdhouse made for Wrens.

Probably have a very annoyed Wren out there that the Chickadee got there first.

Yeah, great pix.

We hadn't seen wrens yet this year, but then a possible tenant for our wren house showed up this week and was checking it out.

Possibly it had to check it out first because males build a few nests to attract a female which she then chooses the nest she likes. Then with the accepted male they finish building it! It's possible my wren house wasn't chosen so the chickadee says "I'll take it! Only half the work to do!".

Nice shots, DP! thumbs up

I was sitting outside at my storage biz this afternoon and heard my first killdeers of the season. Always have to watch when mowing because they make their nests on the ground. The let me know when I get close to the nest though. They act like they're dying and all hope is lost, trying to lead me away. smiley-laughing001

Also saw a pair of barn swallows scouting out a nest location. Those guys are truly acrobats.

I love Swallows-how they fly low over water and grab bugs right at the surface! Here's a couple of Barn Swallow pix I got at Magee Marsh a few years ago:





No other Swallow has the long forked tail. Beautiful color too...
