Crested flycatchers used to nest in our newspaper box every year when I was
growing up in Florida. The newspaper box was next to the mailbox, so it was
mailbox height. The box was never used. It just indicated to the newpaper
person they should throw a paper into the weeds there as they drove by. The
road, Old Dixie Highway, was paved but didn't have a lot of traffic. Aside
from seeing the flycatchers go in and out, we always knew when there was a
nest there because there would be a dried snake skin hanging out.

No, I don't have this flycatcher yet, but would like to prepare for
arrival. Last year there were some postings about the Crested
readily nesting in the tubes used for newspaper delivery. I now have a
tube but can't find the directions given for placement etc. Would
some advice. Thanks.
A pretty good week here at Slick Rock so far. A pair of Wood Ducks
investigating the nesting boxes, still have a pair of Hooded Mergansers,
pair of Mallards and a few Ring-necked ducks still hanging around. A few
Ruddy Ducks were here for a couple of days. Purple Finches still coming
good numbers (more than a dozen) but the Siskin numbers dropped from
to just one today. A pair of Pileated Woodpeckers have started coming
the suet feeder together which makes a pretty sight.
Today the first Mourning Cloak of the season.
