Chickadee - Poecile atricapillus
Viewed from my balcony
I have two chickadees that come to my feeder all and everyday. They bring their young to feed in spring but, so far, I have not had any luck with the nest box.

Waiting for it's turn at the feeder
Every spring they, very industriously, fly in and out of the nest box with nesting materials but, apart for three eggs one spring, nothing.
The eggs had been abandoned.
There are other birds that come to my feeder, notably the Hairy Woodpecker and the Flicker
Hairy woodpecker (Picoides villosus)
Flicker (Woodpecker - Colaptes auratus)
Junco’s would like to fly to and perch on the feeder but only one seems to have mastered the art.
To the Chickadee it is no problem at all.
