Description

For about a week,this Red-breasted Nuthatch has been periodically stopping by to excavate what appeared to be a nesting hole, in a dead tree. The female is always near by, when he is playing woodpecker. I have had Red-breasted Nuthatches nest my bird houses, but didn’t know they could excavate their own nesting hole.
