|Once the Eastern Screech Owl had moved out of the box it took less than a day for the house sparrows to take it over. Many birds have looked at it but these two work hard and fast to create a new home|
|Female was bringing in new nesting|
|Male was bringing in long leaves from next door|
|Female telling male to hurray up|
|More reeds brought in.|
The female is now on eggs and male sits beside his new house keeping others away.
I have no problem letting house sparrows use the nest box.
In October all the boxes will be emptied cleaned up and ready for another season.
