Who's That Hiding in the Woodpecker Hole? Guess the Birdorable Bird!

What owl is hiding in this tree?

Can you guess what bird species this is? Take a look at this image of a Birdorable bird peeking out from the cozy nook of a tree hole and see if you can guess the species! This new addition to our Birdorable family will be revealed on our site later this week.

Need a hint?

This charming bird is a native of North America and is known for its unique nesting habits. Rather than building its own nest, it often takes up residence in abandoned woodpecker holes. Keep your eyes peeled for the big reveal of this feathered friend and see if your guess is right!
