    Tagged With nesting in a log
    Karen Retra says

    Discovered four eggs in this log and later heard and saw a pair of adults keeping watch on us (and apparently calling to each other about our presence). Returned the next morning and they were still vary wary of the human nearby. Eventually one made a dash for the nest and I got a few poor photos from a distance before leaving them to it. Beautiful birds.
