I have been lucky enough to witness different species of birds building their nests this spring. The females work extremely hard, while the males act as guards. Some of the males will feed their mates while she is busy collecting nesting material and building, while others escort her back and forth keeping her safe, some will guard the nesting site.
I hope to watch this pair as well as a pair of Tree Swallows (Lucy & Ricky) through the process of building and fledging their young.
I have named this couple Sonny and Cher. It looks like Cher has been stripping a tree :)
