In mid-April, I spotted a pair of chickadees building a nest in the dead sumac.
I measured the depth of the cavity (20cm/8"), as they seemed to have abandoned it. They'd begun putting in cat fur I'd left on a tree outside my front door. The dark fur is Buster fur. Sadly, it seems that something has broken off the tree. I would suspect Butch, hard to say. They are voracious.
