Many thanks, Jack - that sounds like a great solution.

Dap, I put up the second one on Sunday. So far, no takers, but it took them most of 2 weeks to notice the first one. That's so great that your houses are all full! The last time we opened the box, Mom flew out like a tornado!

It is a great feeling. ~smile~

I almost opened the box with the chickadees yesterday, but, after scratching on the front, I looked in and cold just make out the tail fo the mother bird, so I decided not to disturb her.

This morning I saw a bit of activity as I was getting into my car, so, I'm wondering it the eggs have hatched and feeding has begun.
