There exists a little dead birch tree on my studio property where chickadees began to burrow out a dwelling. For some reason they gave up mid-stream. The hole has fooled many a bird looking for a night roost or to escape the bad weather. This nuthatch was no exeption, and he flew away chattering. I think his exact words were . . . "#*<#!!!".
