Useful Hints

  • The female constructs the nest alone; her mate is usually nearby but does not participate in building.
  • The nest is typically built low in dense, well-shaded bushes.
  • Silk from tent caterpillars (Malacosoma spp.) and spider webs are often wrapped around outer portions of the nest.
