Normally I clean mine out after every nesting. But, since I am banding I know when that is. Never had anybody actually nesting this early. Especially with the wet/cold I don't see that it is too early. They are checking out the boxes, though and it would be really easy to tell if what is in there is new or last year's.

We didn't get around to cleaning out our nest boxes yet - but we don't want to disturb any prospective chickadee parents. Did we miss our chance, or should I drag the ladder out?
