Today I had a pair actively going in and out of the box carrying nesting material. Hopefully I will see a complete nest soon. I have not gone out to check today as I did not want to disturb their progress.
It looks like this is a different pair from my earlier nesting. The male seems to have a larger and brighter orange bib on his breast.
Here are a few photos that I took today while they working.
And great photos Dave, Lily, IRIS, ducbucin, and Sami. Good luck with your nesting, Sami.
