Moving on From Nest Attack

Last week's predator attack on the nest box used by the White Breasted Nuthatches appears to have been only a bump in the road for the nuthatches.  For two days now I have seen WBN activity at the same box and clear evidence a new brood attempt is being made.  That's a relief!  I don't like the thought that some negligence on my part imperils the backyard birds.  It's also a clear sign that box is a very desirable property for this species.  If only the rest of the boxes were the same story!  Alas, we only get one or two successes a year and this will be mine.  So we move on!
