DSC_0086 (1)

American Bushtit (female) | Mésange buissonnière | Psaltriparus minimus: This female was accompanied by a male and both were busily looking for nesting material. These birds build amazing pouch-like nest; to see some great photos of these, take a look at the following post on Jim Martin’s blog (CrazyM Bird & Nature Photography).

Taken in the dog park next to the Spirit Trail at Harbourside, North Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada, on March 28, 2016, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR (ISO 720 | 410mm | f/5.6 | 1/1000), cropped for composition. Not baited, called in or set up.
