Default Nest of bushtit.

Managed to see this bushtit and its nest today while photographing shrubs, leaves, flowers buds etc. Rather neat, they have nested 3 times in the garden.

So cool to have birds nesting in your garden! I have never seen a bushtit before. We have the tufted titmouse here in NJ.

All we've got is the common eastern titmouse too. Way cool nest. I'd love to have something like that hanging from one of my trees.

I saw that in one of your slide shows. It's one of my favorite photos of yours.
