Nuthatches

These nuthatches are nesting in an old green woodpecker hole at the bottom of the field.  The hole would have been too big for the smaller birds so they have blocked it up to a more suitable size.  Here, they are taking in food for chicks and bringing out fecal sacs to keep the nest site clean.
