Since that time, least terns have nested

Data were first analyzed using nested
analysis of variance (ANOVA), where nest height was nested
within taxonomic family to examine differences in nest predation, plumage brightness, and dimorphism among nest heights.
Four cases of successful usurpation by Mandarin duck occurred in boxes where Mandarin ducks had nested
in the previous year.
closed-canopy forest for 6 of 13 species that nested
in both habitat types.
DISCUSSION--At both study areas, black-chinned hummingbirds nested
primarily in the subcanopy forest layer, about 4 m from the ground, but we found striking differences in patterns of nest plants used.
Masked boobies regularly nested
in the southern sector of Letterbox during the breeding seasons from 1990 to 2006 (see Table 1).
Birds have also used other riverside buildings as far west as Newcastle Quayside, where 70 pairs nested

Despite the small sample (n = 3) of available turkey hens (birds that nested
for two consecutive years within their first-year range), one of three female turkeys exhibited nest-site fidelity using this method (Table 1).
No warblers nested
, but 19 boxes (28%) were used by House Wrens (Troglodytes aedon; 24 nests) or Carolina Chickadees (Poecile carolinensis; 1 nest).
