I have a cute, and extremely noisy Verdin nesting in one of my Palo Verde trees in our backyard.
I know very little about birds and their nesting habits, but this little bird follows me closely every time I am out there making sure that I am not anywhere near it's nest.
Very sweet indeed! I can't believe how loud it chirps, and it does it ALL DAY, literally, from dawn until dusk. I would never believe such a loud noise could come from such a tiny bird.
As I write there is a team of tree pruners out back working on thinning out my trees. This is the, (I hope), final outcome of a long and drawn out issue of conflict between my DH and I. A long story for a future post. Needless to say they are under strict orders not to disturb my little bird and it's nest. I have my fingers crossed.
