A penduline tit nest

Eurasian penduline tit nest

Walking along the bed of the river Llobregat we found this lovely nest. We could not see  its tenant, a penduline tit (Remiz pendulinus) or pájaro moscón in Spanish. This bird builds an elaborate hanging nest, used in Central Europe as children’s slippers in the past. To build its nests uses thin branches, spider webs, animal or vegetal fibers, spider webs, seeds, etc.
