These amazing pictures were sent to me from off the net by Ray , Barnsley Lad. Please address any comments to Ray :-)
Amazing sequence of photos Ray, thanks for finding them and sharing them :-)
Wow that's amazing..what birds are they?
doggiewhat birds are they?
They're superb photos and what a fabulous nest!!
Fabulous set of photos
Wow, what an amazing construction. I've no idea what the birds are either - we need aiki, or maybe Ray knows.
Cool photos! They are (I think) Rufous Horneros Furnarius rufus, a member of the ovenbird family (Furnariidae) and native to South America.
Thanks for that Aiki! That would make sense! Looks like a clay oven and they certainly are rufous! :-)
And a useless factoid or two : Horno is Spanish for oven and Furnarius translates from the Latin as "trade of a baker". I must get out more. LOL
You have to wonder if it is entirely instinct that tells them what to do or is it learned from older birds ? Goodness knows how many trips to a muddy puddle it takes to build one of those.
Was the only way I thought of sending them.
It doesn't say what birds they are but sure Aiki will be right.
Isn't nature amazing
No Need to thank me Ray, I thank YOU for sending them. Yes, nature is truely amazing, and these are great :-)
