    6. I which I could climb up there to inspect the nest ,but those days are gone.
      By the way Christine , I replied to your comment about the angry bird but I messed it up and my
      reply is in the wrong place. The more I tried to fix it the worse it got.
    7. Yes Lisa it is unusual .They must be transporting all the soil all the way up. I don’t think that it comes from inside the tree.

      Christine I think a Falcon would be jealous of your eyeside.
      It could be a small parasite or as Franny ( another eagle eye) suggested it could be a small fly. The bird appeared at the time very healthy.
