Bluebird and Small Cavity Nester Conservation

Mystery Nest #8


This nest is in a Gilwood box at my trail at the closed landfill. It was almost complete but had no eggs the last two weeks when I monitored.

The box is on a patch of lawn, along the entrance to the Transfer Station, near a wooded area.



This is what the top of the nest looked like.

Can you guess who is nesting in this box now?

...over our heads will float the Blue Bird singing of beautiful and impossible things, of things that are lovely and that never happen, of things that are not and that should be.
- Oscar Wilde, The Decoy of Lying, Intentions, 1905
