After successfully fledging two young back in November these Mistletoebirds have decided its time to raise another family. They have built a new nest, about ten metres from the original, recycling some of the material into another ‘work of art’. Again, they’ve chosen to suspend the delicately woven purse on the outer canopy of a rose-bush, this time facing south-east, rather than the due east as was the case with the first nest. The female is doing the nest-building – interestingly an immature bird, presumably from the previous brood, was spotted looking on.
