Hi all,
A pair of Great Crested Flycatchers have been seen in the yard over the
last few days. They are currently working on nest building in a Screech Owl
house I put up last fall. I have photographed them with nest building
materials in their bills and going into the house. A House Wren is
occupying a house 10′ from the Screech Owl house. I hope the excitement
continues that they raise some young here in the yard. At this time there
are Indigo Buntings, House Wrens, Eastern Bluebirds (2nd time this year),
and Chipping Sparrows nesting here and most likely Gray Catbirds, Northern
Cardinals and Ruby-throated Hummingbirds.

A link to some of the images of the Great Crested Flycatchers nest building

Thanks and good birding,
