Bird Must Be Building A Nest

I walked out into the garage this afternoon as I was eating a sandwich and wanted to look outside while doing so when I noticed a bird flying back and forth out of the corner of my eyes. I took out my telescope to get a closer look and saw what was going on. Turns out this bird were gathering materials for a nest. It was actually funny looking to see it pulling the old stem from the milkweed apart to get these little pieces.

Here is a photo of bird taking nesting materials from the stalks of the milkweed plant left over from last year.

A Bird Taking Materials From Our Milkweed Plant

Here is a photo of a bird taking nesting materials from the stalks of the milkweed plant left over from last year.

It seemed to be flying more or less straight up when it was flying away. Maybe it’s building a nest in our tree right above the patio which would be cool. I couldn’t see where it was flying off to because the door frame was blocking it. I didn’t want to go outside and disturb it from doing its thing.
