[This] pair of Verdins [is] building a nest near the start of the connector trail to the Bear Canyon Road. Someone had told me that only male Verdins build nests, but this pair was definitely doing it together. At one point I saw both the male and female with sticks in their mouths at the same time.

Anne says: According to All about Birds, Verdins do build nests in pairs.
Anne also says: Beautiful colors in this shot!
