I put out a bluebird feeder in my back yard yesterday, I didnt suspect it would get any because its right near a pond but unfortunately I dont have any open space like bluebirds like. Within 5 minutes of putting it out there 2 chickadee's had their eye on it doing an inspection, sure enough today was building day.

1) first the bird enjoying the sunlight

Chickadees move in quick don't they? Great captures. My Bluebird box was up for 1 1/2 days and Chickadees moved in...they're sitting on eggs now. Pretty cool to watch them.

No kidding I put up the box and walked about 10 ft away trying to get a pic of a nuthatch when I heard them having a rather loud conversation over there, I dont know if they were so excited or if they were arguing because one of them didnt want it lol

They are darn fast as well, I was trying to get a pic of it in flight going from the moss area to the house which was about 20 ft, no way I could get a clear shot that thing was bouncing everywhere on its way.
