Great Crested Flycatcher Nest Box Selection Documentary

Mini- Documentary about a pair of Great Crested Flycatchers inspecting two owl nest boxes and a woodpecker nest box before deciding where to build their nest and raise their family. Watch as this fascinating Great Crested Flycatcher couple go house hunting in a buyers market - its all about location, location, location! Also note the importance of placing a post for perching in the open near the nest box - birds really like this feature for ease of access, hunting and security.

Note: The nest box camera failed due to a lightning strike, but four of the five eggs hatched and four baby flycatchers successfully fledged during the fourth week of May!
