This male was very focused when bilding this nest. With the utmost precision he weaved tiny strings of grass into this solid nest. I watched him for over ten minutes before he flew off. The nest here is far from done. It takes the male 2-12 days to finish it, and on this nest, the narrow entrance, pointing towards the ground, is still missing.
