Carolina Chickadee (Parus carolinensis)

Very similar to the more widespread Black-capped Chickadee, the Carolina Chickadee, a south-eastern species can excavate its own cavity in rotten wood, but also uses secondary cavities including nestboxes.

You can see pics of natural Chickadee nesting cavities here and here.
