Building The Nest I
Uploaded: April 14, 2008
Both mates will share in the nest building. Only one will fly off in search of long twigs used to form the foundation of the nest. Its partner will remain on the site and accept and carefully place the twigs. Seldom, if ever, will the birds select a dead twig, but will snap a branch from a living tree.It is carefully intertwined with other branches. This task will continue off and on throughout the day consuming about 2 or 3 hours at the most.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.
Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:
I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
