Bushtit nest building and ‘cleaning’
At the William L Finley National Refuge I observed this Bushtit nest very close to the trail. After capturing some stills of the two adults working on the nest I decided to shoot some video as well. Bushtits make a very interesting ‘sock-like’ nest of lichen, moss, grasses and spider webs. Because the nest is pliable, it’s almost comical to watch the adults as they move around in the nest!
