A few days ago I was able to snap this shot of the little bird that is building a nest under our porch eaves. Does anyone know what kind of bird this is? I cruised around birding websites for about five minutes before becoming overwhelmed by the number of birds that look exactly like this one and gave up. If anyone has an expert birding eye and happens to know what species this is, please do share!
I also captured these shots of the nest while the bird was flying about collecting twigs and moss:
Pretty, right? Isn't it amazing that these little structures are built one twig at a time?
This evening the bird appears to be roosting. It generally flies off as soon as anyone enters the porch area, but today I was able to quickly snap this shot before moving away so as not to disturb it. I am assuming it is incubating eggs, though I really have no idea.
Brimfield (HOORAY!!!!!), one day of bumming around in Boston, and a trip to Todd Farm on the way home on Sunday. I am perhaps more excited about the next five days than any others this year. BRIMFIELD HERE I COME!!
