Lewins' nest building

 Recently a pair of  resident Lewin Honeyeaters Meliphaga lewinii, started working on a nest in the clump of bamboo palm that we have in the garden at our front entrance. We have a window directly opposite, so we are looking forward to seeing the development of the nest and hoping we are going to be lucky enough to see a family reared.

The nest was commenced using spiderweb to attach to the stem and since they have been adding grasses and downy seed materia,l interwoven with more spiderweb.
