Nuthatch and Squirrel in Cherry Tree - C2405crop - A pair of Nuthatch were building a nest inside this cherry tree's hollow while I was photographing a nearby hawk's nest. After about 30 minutes, this squirrel commandeered the tree. While the nuthatch tried for another hour to look suitably threatening to the squirrel, they were unsuccessful.  In later visits to the site, the squirrel was clearly at home.
