Following up yesterday's post of the vibrant male Blackburnian, here is his partner, the equally beautiful female. She has a very similar color pattern as the male but is much more muted in tone. We got to watch her gathering nesting material of spider webs off a nearby tree which was some very cool behaviors to witness. Watching these birds for a few hours in their habitat just doing their thing was a very special time for me and I was able to leave with great memories and great photos to share the experience. I hope you enjoy seeing these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
