Hardcore Spring

Nest-building abounds this weekend. Standing on the lawn of Holy Names Academy at 21st and Mercer, I can point to three crow building operations, one flicker nest-carving maneuver, and one nearly completed bushtit nest (see male with unnerving yellow eyes above).

  1. Female bushtits are the ones with the light colored eyes. When a flock is feeding at my suet feeder, there is always a female or two keeping a lookout with those amazing and intimidating eyes. They are tiny and mighty! Great photo!
