After watching mom yesterday checking last year’s nest various times, she was very territorial this morning and continued to chase away one of the Chickadees. And - she always returned to another branch – not last year’s. When looking at that branch from another window, mom had started building this new nest. First thing, the bird feeder was moved so the Chickadees would hopefully leave her (area) alone. Then photographing. And finally checked the nest building last year: June 30, 2016: First nest building impression. Approx. 6 weeks earlier this year! What will this Summer bring?! :-)
