Nesting season is over. I went out to clean out my chickadee box. I had seen Bewick’s wrens in the spring, bringing nest material to it. I got so excited, I figured wrens had beaten chickadees to prime real estate. I watched and watched. But after a while did not see any wren activity at the box. I assumed they had abandoned it.
I also watched for chickadees, but never saw any going in or out.
But opening the box just now, I got such a surprise! A beautiful little nest. There must have been a clutch! But whose?
Here’s the nest. You can see moss, twigs, feathers and other materials.

Love the blue feather, wonder where whichever bird was there, got it? Off a hat?
I find Stellers Jay feathers now and then, so no doubt this nest builder found one too!
I am just seeng this, Joan, as I was in the hospital when you wrote this.
What a lovely nest, particularly those bluejay feathers! Glad you were ‘there’ for all of this.
