Penduline Tit nest building

AKA Eurasian Penduline-Tit

When we first noticed this chap, the nest consisted of only the top bit where it attaches to the branch. An hour later he had made a complete circle. I don't know how long the whole thing takes but I believe he has to build several. Here he's taking a little break to sing.


Better viewed large.
