This nesting box has been attached to a wall on the deck for several years. Most of the stenciling I did awhile ago has weathered along with the wood. It has remained uninhabited by the birds until a few days ago. It is close enough to the window for me to be able to sketch and photograph, which has been a lot of fun. They have brought so much nesting material into this box, and sometimes I see them taking a beak full back out, maybe Diane doesn't like the color! They are busy all day.
I decided to name them Jack and Diane, after the John Mellencamp song. I guess I could have called them Bonnie and Clyde, but that is somehow not as fitting. I hope these little Carolina Chickadees have a successful hatching!
