Perhaps necessary to show who is the king of this forest?

Some months ago a woodpecker made the entrance hole to the nest box larger, behaved rowdily and threw out nest materials (it is of course good that the old nest materials were removed). Sometimes it even came in daytime to check the nest box.

Despite the so to say autumny weather brown bears have already started giving birth in our forests in December, and it can last until February. Up to sixty mother bears will see an increase in their family.
