Crows building nests

A lot of our resident birds are busy getting an early start and building their nests already. Perhaps the most visible because of the size of the bird and distinctiveness of the messy nest are crows, it helps that the trees are still bare, so catching site of a crow with a beak full of twigs patching up last years nest is fairly easy. A Carrion Crow's nest is usually built in the fork of a tree, but can be spotted on electricity pylons and other weird places. It is made by both the male and female and consists of a large construction of twigs lined with hair and bark.
