Flycatcher filling the box

Flycatcher on box with pinestraw
One of our bird boxes was made to specs for the Flycatcher. The Great Crested Flycatcher is a regular summer resident. The 'breep, breep' calls can be heard all along the island. The box has been used before by flycatchers and this year they have taken to it, spending the last few days filling it up.
Pine straw is one of the nesting materials they are using.
