As promised, here's an update on the progress of the bower bird nest in my garden. The photo was taken this afternoon, & it's clear that our glossy, black feathered friend has made excellent use of the random blue things left around the yard. It has also added some bits of dark green twist tie (it's something that we use a lot, for tying plants & it seems to come with every plant you buy, holding the label to the plant, so as a result there's always bits of it about). The blue feather is a particularly nice touch...I'd seen that feather around for weeks & almost swept it up with some fallen leaves, but I ended up leaving it where it was...glad that I did because it evidently came in handy!
I did see the birds themselves around the nest today, but couldn't get a photo of them in situ...I'll keep on trying...
