Inside the Nest Box

Inside the nest box

© 2008 David Jones (

This picture shows the nest almost completed. Look how carefully the twigs and moss have been almost woven together with very few spaces. The birds have made the nest cup-shaped, and lined the middle with animal hair to provide soft, bedding for the chicks.

This photograph has been taken secretly through a glass side to the nest box. The birds have no idea. If the birds were to be disturbed they would leave the nest immediately.
