NotesThe three-storey nest was built in early spring built in our neighbour’s garden. Of interest is that it was an old male who built the nest. Hanging adjacent is a normal nest. In between, he still built about five normal nests. For a few days there was a female in and out of the nest. Once the trees leaves started growing, I could not see the nest.
