Nesting titmouses: Days 1 & 2 - Building a mattress of moss

March 14, 2021

Our favorite nesting box (we made it out of an ancient piece of hollow live oak root) now has tenants. A pair of titmouses has claimed it and the female has been busy for 2 days bringing in moss to create a soft, warm mattress for the nest cup.

We will be following the titmouses’ progress while they build their nest and, we hope, lay eggs and raise their chicks. Watch this space!
