We set up a chickadee nest box this spring, complete with wood chips as nesting material. A couple of weeks later, I noticed a pile of the small chips on the ground beneath the box. A short time later, I saw a wren in the act of tossing out the chips, and then shortly thereafter bringing twigs in for her nest. No sign that chickadees ever occupied the box, though.
