What to do when the box becomes occupied

Female Nuthatches build the nest without assistance from their mate. They line the box with soft bits of bark, dirt and matted fur. The nest is cup shape and composed of grass, feathers and other soft pieces of material. 5 -8 eggs is typical for a clutch. The eggs are incubated for 13 - 14 days and young will fledge around 11 days later.
