Nest building

The sparrows in my neighbourhood must have the most luxurious nests available. Every year at this time they come back to my garden and strip my pampas grass fronds, flying away with their beaks crammed full of fluffy nest-lining. It must be the avian equivalent of a Tempura mattress!

It doesn’t take long for the grass to disappear and only the stalks are left.
