This nest sort of stood out as there aren't too many leaves on our trees yet. Now, saying that, not one person who walked or jogged by could see what I was looking at :). If I hadn't of seen a flicker out of the corner of my eye, I would have missed it as well.

I had found a nest long ago and we had a big discussion on it.

Amazing spotting Glen. To actually see them making a nest is a real treat.
