Bushtit

With spring in the air, one of the things I usually try to do each year is photograph Bushtits building their amazing nests.

Here a Bushtit is arriving beside the nest with nesting material. The main opening for this nest was on the opposite side of me and inaccessible.

At a different nest, this shot was taken from the side to get the background I wanted. Fortunately one of the pair came out another opening at the top on this side allowing me to show some activity. I have yet to find a Bushtit nest this year with a clear shot of the main front opening plus having a background I can render soft and colourful.
