The nuthatches, which may keep mates for several years and which sometimes have "helpers" (adults who assist in tending a nest), had this nest for at least two years running. Unfortunately, the nest was destroyed a few weeks later; it is uncertain if it was by a raccoon or predator, a storm or something else.

Glad you enjoyed the blog, Ava! I hope to find their nest in the same area next year. Thanks for your nice comments, James!

Nice blog. Sad about the snag being broken.
Thank you, Ava. It was so interesting that I wrote a blog about their nesting this year. http://mybeautifulworldblog.com/2015/06/...
