Chickadee nest!

Today I got to follow Caren Cooper about on her NestWatch route in Sapsucker Woods. It was exciting--we had two chickadee nests and one mouse nest. Both the chickadee nests (one with 9 eggs, one with 8) were in artificial snags made of PVC pipe. The mouse was in a wooden nest box.

  1. 9 eggs in a chickadee nest!?! I can't believe such a little bird could lay so many. There must be more to this story.
