Blue-gray Gnatcatcher Nest Update

April 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

It has been a week of contrasts. The weather began rainy and windy, and today is a perfect Easter Sunday, sunny and 80 degrees. The gnatcatchers have been building up their nest steadily. I've enjoyed watching them tug at lichen on the other ash trees, gather spider webs and now, a few feathers. I wonder when the birds will pronounce it ready. It's really hard work to build a nest!
