A New Home for the Flycatchers

Not wanting to see a repeat of last year's reckless nesting behavior on the part of the Cordilleran flycatchers, I put up a nesting ledge more or less above last year's nest (and I moved the pipe).

Here is the female on her clutch of four eggs, the usual number.

I don't think that any of the other new or relocated birdhouses are occupied, however.

Evidently I understand dogs and flycatchers, but not cavity nesters.
