Bird behavior fascinates me. Black-capped Chickadees have such personality. I was watching a pair flying back and forth with something in their beaks when flying away from this hole in a tree. Turns out they were carting away wood chips and scattering them some distance from the nest. Very industrious fellows.
Flying back to the nest.
Fuch's Pond Preserve in Northport, NY. This is where I found my chickadees. A hidden jewel for birders it is said. There was an egret fishing in the far end of the pond and I did see two other birds I normally don't see plus a red-tail hawk flying overhead. I'll be back to this place.
