Me too Nicky - thanks.

Wow! It amazes me how birds can build nests of any kind with their beaks and feet. If we tried to do it with our hands we'd probably make a terrible mess of it!

robryan

LOL!!! Sure Deborah!!!
I agree gnt - thanks. That's why I like to go snooping around to find the different & interesting photos.

Do they do blankets? Is that a tiny tufted titmouse Meadowhawk?

robryan

My pleasure tex - thanks.
Can you get a photo of it Meadowhawk? It sounds interesting. Thanks.

Meadowhawk

We have a bird here who builds a similar nest - a titmouse. Very plain looking but like this one, a very amazing little bird. Interesting!

Looks like he's made an escape hatch at the bottom, almost like a little tube! Pretty bird, too. Thanks, RR.

Oops - thanks Monica - my typo!!! I'm answering emails & doing Jigidi at the same time!!
It sure is chickie - smart bird! Thanks.
Thanks for the interesting info Karls - there's no pleasing some females!!! Birds only of course:)))

THEY BUILD THESE NESTS TO GET MATING PARTNERS. THE LADIES WATCH AND IF ONE LIKES IT, SHE MOVES IN. IF NONE LIKE IT, HE PULLS IT APART AND STARTS AGAIN UNTIL ONE DOES LIKE IT. LITTLE ARCHITECTS.

It's hard to believe they can weave a nest like that.

robryan

I guess he likes room to move lyndee!!! Maybe to keep predators out would be more like it.
Thanks chickie.

Wow! That's quite a talented bird there with his fancy nest! He's beautiful too, love his bright yellow feathers! Thanks Rob!

I wonder why a bird so small needs a nest so big. Love it's color.
