John Mudd - Master Builder at work

I showed you John Mudd (João da Barro) in a previous post. Up to now I had never seen him actually building his fantastic nest even though we have several of them in our neighbourhood.

This post is a collection of photos of John Mudd and his wife Jane Mudd building their nest. It took three months to construct.

Note: These photos are from a pps by Miguel Durante of Poços de Caldas. He has kindly permitted me to publish them in this blog.

John Mudd is a pretty bird about the size of a Canadian Robin.

The construction begins!

The nest is finished and ready for the couple to live in. The curious thing is that after all that work they only use it once. They build a new nest each year.
