FIXING A HOLE

Add to Cart
In spring, pygmy nuthatch pairs excavate nest cavities in rotted trees, usually twenty feet above the ground. The female then incubates the eggs for up to two weeks. When the eggs hatch, the nestlings are cared for by their parents and by the previous year's offspring, who aid their parents in rearing of their young and protection of their nest site.
