Red-browed Finch in nest

Here’s a little Red-browed Finch putting the finishing touches to its nest. While I was there, I saw both partners in action, although this video shows only one bird.

The Red-browed Finch I blogged about in September was reasonably close to this nest. It may even be the same bird!
