I've been watching this pair of flickers peck a hole in the top of this dead white fir tree. This morning I heard them working at it and set up the camera on my tripod and got a picture of one of them in front of the hole. Well, this afternoon we heard more pecking and went to check only to find a Red-breasted Nuthatch in the hole throwing pieces of wood out of it and obviously settling in. I'll keep an eye on the situation and see who ends up nesting in it.
