Nest building.

Spotted this black capped chickadee and its partner excavating a hole in this stump today.
Hope it stays active so I can follow it through the season.

Poecile atricapillus

The Black-Capped Chickadee hides seeds and other food items to eat later. Each item is placed in a different spot and the chickadee can remember thousands of hiding places.
