      So I made a dumb mistake this morning. I have a camera I use to check the hatchlings instead of opening the box. The camera head is attached to the body by a thin band. Almost like old tape cassette reel but much more ridged. So I tape that band to a stiff thin piece of wood and I use that to slide in the gap above the bluebird hole and below the roof. Well after I got a look at the hatchlings I pulled it out and it got stuck. So I pulled harder and the head of the camera popped off. It very small, I’d say maybe a couple centimeters. I’m sure it fell somewhere in the nest but it’s too hard to see and I don’t want to risk rooting around in there. Do you think they will be ok? You think one of the birds will move it or take it out?

        Dave, I’m not familiar with measurements but if it was small enough it will work its way into the nesting material I believe – I don’t believe they would try to remove it – others need to chime in here . . . . I just open my boxes and look in (old fashioned way).
