Building a new home in a fairly new pressure treated hydro pole. Harder than one could imagine but they have made a huge nest judging by the amount of chips on the ground.

Fantastic Shots!
I saw one today but it was about 250 yards away! I got a shot but, you really can't see much.

Very neat shots - amazing that they can hollow out such a pole for a home. I love all the wood chips flying around - never thought about that before.

I've never seen a bird build a nest in a utility pole. Interesting. I love your capture of the flying chips.

You are soooo lucky to get to photograph one of those. They are so skittish here that 100-200 yards is as close as you can get to them.

Hi dwssas,

Some great captures!!!!

I've never seen one in the wild, and probably have little hope to. I also haven't seen too many pics of these guys that included anything manmade in the frame, so I imagine a nest in a pole like this is pretty freaking rare.

Very nice going!

Scott

Fantastic series, dwassas. Besides the interesting theme the pic quality is extra plus. Lens etc?
