This week's post on Union Bay Watch features a local bird with a nest in the Arboretum. This bird excavates its nest by creating a hole in a tree. It will aggressively defend its territory, even from larger birds. Another of its defensive techniques is to place resin around the entry to its nest. Can you guess what kind of bird I am from these three little clues?

To confirm your guess visit Union Bay Watch to see this bird and its nest.

Nesting in progress.

I hope you enjoy the photos and the video.
