st (where now scarce), mostly in brushy areas around the edges of woods.
Site is in any kind of cavity, including natural hollows in trees, old woodpecker holes; also in manmade sites, including birdhouses, holes in buildings, mailboxes, tin cans, many others. Usually less than 20′ above the ground. Male may build incomplete
“dummy” nests; female probably chooses site and completes one nest. Nest has foundation of twigs, leaves, bark strips, and trash, topped with softer cup of moss, leaves, animal hair, feathers. Sometimes adds bits of snakeskin to nest.
Eggs: 5-7, sometimes 4-11. White, with brown and gray blotches often concentrated at larger end. Incubation is probably by female only, about 14 days.
Young: Both parents bring food for nestlings. Young leave the nest about 2 weeks after hatching.
Feeds on a wide variety of insects, including beetles, ants, wasps, true bugs, caterpillars, grasshoppers, and many others. Also eats many spiders, and occasionally some berries or seeds.
Behavior: Forages very actively by climbing and hopping about on trunks, branches, and twigs of trees, probing into bark crevices or gleaning insects from the surface. Also feeds on the ground, flipping over leaves and
probing among leaf litter.
Migration: Some are present all year in most parts of breeding range, but many depart from northern areas and higher elevations in winter; may be more migratory in East than in West.
