A great catch! I rarely see those.
I was wondering if it was looking for nest building materials.
She is really cute! Enjoy your weekend.
Ah, what a handsome one!! Fun captures as always -- and, as always, I do love them!! Hope you have a lovely weekend!! Enjoy!!
Great photos! Very cute bird!
You do get the greatest neighbors ever.
It is busy looking for a little mushroom. It wants to listen it's interesting stories.
That will be a cozy nest! ;-)
Almost looks like he was shopping! I like that flat-top v, too. Have a great weekend, Tex!
Waste not, want not, I guess!
lucky you...i don't think you usually see this bird. i like the soft color and the flat top you pointed out. i would have missed that!!!enjoy your weekend!!!
Very cute. Looks like a curious little bird checking you out before carrying on with his nest building. :-)
That little crest is handsome.
Cute! We had a pair of Mockingbirds build a nest in a flower basket and hatch two babies this spring.
Great pictures ... and they work so hard building their nests.Happy Weekend WishesAll the best Jan
Remarkable series of pics. Such a sweet looking bird and precious about lining the nest with soft feathers. Hope you are doing well. Have a restful evening.
I don't know how you know all this stuff! But I see what you mean about the military haircut!
Sort like making lemonade out of lemons, huh? :-)
A great series of photos. I like the comparison of the flattened crest with a flat-top haircut!
It can blow your mind how nature gives everything the sense it needs to survive. You must have a lot of patience to capture all these different actions.
A very pretty flycatcher; h/she found a great place to nest!
Sweet little bird, great photos! Thanks also for ID'ing my duck. :)
I was wondering if it was nesting. Never too late to do so in Texas.
I thought that maybe the feather remnant would have been it's mate. Smart little bird using feather fluff to line it's nest. Great shots.Hugs,JB
These are very special captures.
Great capture! Love the look on the 'uh oh' shot!
Wonderful captures. You are great at being patient capturing what the bird was doing. Love all the shots!
Dearest Theresa; Wow...what a scene of a Flycatcher taking hawk's dove kill☆☆☆ And I LOVED to see the cute eyes you captured he/she has(^_^)ｖSending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako
PS; 'taking feathers of' p;-)
Love the first and seventh portraits. Looks like a "cute" little fella.
That's a very pretty bird! Nice that they are nesting near you.
You've really got to watch these characters to see what they're doing. Nice series of photos.
Lovely little bird. What a cozy nest it will be.
What a handsome, hard-working, Dad to be!
Great observation! I love watching birds. Have been busy getting my house on the market for sale. Can't wait until we are all situated and I have time to blog again. Hope you are well.
Looks like he's on a mission.
I'm envious of your time watching the birds with your cameras, but grateful you share what you see!
Curious little bird and very expressive...
Glad it was looking for nesting material... and not leftovers. Great series of shots!
Great to have them nesting nearby. Hope you got to see some babies.
These are some superb images of this lovely little bird. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Great shots!Have a beautiful weekend Crissi
Very cute little bird, and very beautiful photos! :)
You caught this little beauty perfectly! She even seems to be posing for you.
seems that other species are better at recycling than we are. 'the cycle of life' that is.gracias, mi amiga
I like the second pic... Kinda like "what the heck happened here?":@)
This birdie is so cute and small! So she is building a nest! So excited for them. Happy weekend.
He/She looks very beautiful...
The flattened crest does look very funny. I saw a swallow's nest and it had a lot of feathers lining it, I suppose they are very soft.
Looks vigilant. You could take many sharp pictures.Greetings,Filip
CUTE. I like this little military cut, too. ;) blessings ~ tanna
in the first photos i thought it was a baby bird, but then they would not be making a nest. what ever the age, he is a baby doll bird
Making the nest so comfy.Wonderful photos.
A very fine camera catch . . . and the accompanying story line too. I would never say that the birds can't be my friends . . .For they are forever bringing me moments of smiles and relaxation . . .Just like right now . . .Sounds like there might be more Flycatcher Nesting camera moments ahead . . .
Morning, such a sweet looking bird, love the FlyCatcher,Blessings Francine.
Hello Tex, great series on the Great Crested Flycatcher. It is neat you caught this bird collecting nesting material. Awesome photos! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
Oh that is cute - not only the faces of the bird, but her/his creative use of the feathers - circle of life
I would be very excited to have a Great-Crested Flycatcher's nest in my yard!! Very cool!
Always amazed at the number of different birds you get to see down there on the ranch. Nice shots, Theresa.
Lovely photos , He is cute . Have a good weekend !
Hello Tex!!Wow!!Such a beauty!!So beautiful bird!!Excellent shots!!Dimi...
What a pretty, industrious guest.Amaliaxo
It was a sad end for the dove, but life in the wild can be hard. At least a hawk was fed and a flycatcher found soft lining for its nest.
That cutie seemed very interested in you!
geweldig mooi zo in het hoge gras
It looks so sweet and innocent just sitting there.
Good recycling project going on there! Picking out the best for the nest. Nice series of shots.
Happy nesting right! I'm so happy you caught this story with photos too!
He came to the right place to get the nest material. It made a very interesting series to document his search and deliberation before taking flight again. Nice post!
Quite a pretty bird, Theresa!
What a cutie this one is. That is a total military-style haircut!
Beautiful shots of flycatcher.
Piękny ptaszek:) Pozdrawiem i zapraszam: origamiiptaki.blogspot.com
he/she was just shoppingMB
Good Morning Theresa, Love this series of shots you captured with this pretty bird. Great hair cut markings. Your photos are awesome.Have a nice weekend and stay cool! cm
What a fun capture...the feathers were going to fit right in and create a soft home.Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
Adorable ! Enjoyed all photos.
It is just so beautiful! And wonderful that it is building a nest!
Like that flat top hair cut too.
Aww great shots, they look so sweet :)
such a cute face. (the flat top is adorable too)
Very nice series of photographs of this beautiful bird :-) I have photos or missed in my move.
How wonderful that they are nesting so close by!
Great captures of this pretty bird. Thanks for pointing out the flat top, I would have missed that and that is exactly what it looks like!
What a wonderful set of images. I love seeing this little bird up so close. How sweet to see it at work.
I was gonna say, she's hunting for nesting material.It's such a pretty bird. Thanks for sharing your link today at I'd Rather B Birdin' --- I know I'm in the wrong blog admin for birding, but, had to stop by and view your flycatcher images...perfect.
It's so cute. Nice shots :)
Waht a fantastic small bird
Great looking bird. Fantastic that you have them in your garden.
Wonderful photos, TWG. Birdie knew what to do...~
Lovely variety of photos of a darling 'feathered friend' ~Happy Weekend to you,artmusedog and carol
Wonderful photo sequences. It so tells the story. I look forward to seeing the babies!!
That is a nice series !
Awesome shots! I love his hairstyle, too!
T, nice catch! And nice series of shots! Sure was a curious one!
Hi Tex, It's neat to see how the little critters work.
That is what I thought was going on! Critters are smart. Nature recycles.
a beautiful bird.
I love that lemony yellow breast...the ones I see are just shades of gray! Enjoy your weekend Tex! Hugs!
Handsome little fella!
That is so fun to watch! Got to see some chickadees build a nest once. Great photos!
Oh..what a cool story! I've never seen this bird before..love his or her military haircut! Lol
I learn about so many different species of birds from your blog!
Ahhhhhhh, of course. :)
Wonderful series of photos ! This bird is beautiful! I also like his haircut:)))Happy weekend !
Great series on the flycatcher! And you got wonderful detail over its crest and the moment.
Cant overlook an opportunity like that - nice shots.Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
This fly catcher knew what it was looking at.A bird's eye view (pun intended) amazes me. They seem to look in two directions and yet process what they see sharply and instantaneously.
シEle está se divertindo com a seção de fotografias!...Boa semana!!!Beijinhos.ჱه° ·.❤˚° ·.
I find that incredibly touching.Flycatchers are awesome birds!
You have wonderful patience to sit/stand so still and take these awesome shots!!! Don't you love it when your birdhouse is being used!!!
Another beautiful bird, what a character!
Great series of shots, and a very inquisitive bird! That one-eye stare that they do always makes me laugh!
This is a bird I'm not very familiar with, but is very pretty. Nice shots, especially catching the light in the eyes.
Cute bird and very brave. He needed the material for the socket and it was the most important. Greetings.
That was seriously cool. That hair cut does look like a military style cut. Cute bird.
Lovely bird! And it is recycling, LOL.
The angle of the head makes you think it is listening for critters to eat. I guess the dove's feathers will make a nice nest, too bad for the dove.
Really very beautiful shots.
So this is what "feathering a nest" means!
Dearest Theresa,So glad to read that these great crested flycatchers chose your birdhouse as their new residence.Cute photos!Hugs,Mariette
Hi! It's been awhile. I just popped in to catch up on you :) Amazing how green it still is in your neck of the woods. I guess all that rain was good for you.
Great pictures - the incident sure makes me wonder . . . I'm glad the material could be used for a nest . . . Life . . . you get it in great doses . . . (I'm humbled)
Oh what great shots. You must have a fabulous camera! I enjoyed this so much. I can't wait to see more. I missed shots this morning. AGAIN! There are barn swallows nesting at the boys prison on the drive thru (forget what it's called) We aren't allowed to take our phones in. They flew away so I couldn't get a shot. I think next week I'll take my phone anyway and just have it stored. Gotta get that shot. Thanks for sharing yours. Have a great week.
Cute bird and great shots!Have a Great Week!Peace :)
Hi Tex, Yes, I would think that the bird would take advantage of free feathers, especially the soft little ones, for her or his nest. It is that time of year. Great pictures of the Flycatcher! Have a wonderful coming week!
I saw one of these little cuties a couple of weeks ago, and kept forgetting to look it up--I'd not seen one before, so your post has saved me from that, THANKS! :-)Hope you're doing well, I've missed being able to stop by your blog, but I'm hopeful life will return to "normal" very soon! Take care!!
Very cute bird, wonderful pictures!
A great series of shots. Clever bird making a feather lining for its nest but I wouldn't hang around too long in the spot where the hawk attacked.
Delightful photos! What a lovely bird.
Oh my - so adorable!
Wonderfull bird. Yours:)*
Beautiful! Great photos.Greetings.
Darling bird and such sweet photos. Loved that it was building a nest nearby.
What a sweet little cutie pie; love the flat top 'do as well!
I'm thinking a Fly Catcher would be an exciting catch :) even though you regularly seem to find pretty exciting ones. What a cutie!
he/she looks so curious ... what a cutie. checking everything out for sure. ( :
Such a treat! For you and for us. :) Your photographs of him are so wonderful!!
Nice series of pics.. Regards.
Great images! Glad something good came of the dove kill.
What a cute bird! I do like his crest. How nice of the hawk to leave some building materials.
Enjoyed the series of photos. Must have been fun to watch him. Takes his job seriously.
One bird's tragedy is another bird's blessing - amazing capture! So nice that they are nesting nearby! A handsome bird - I like his coloring.
I hope everything is okay with you....you rarely miss a day!
What a beauty!
She is so cute and work so hard as well. We can learn a lesson or two, I know that I can.
The Great-Crested Flycatcher is the greatest, beautiful.
I like the bird's yellow belly. I like your pictures today because they seem similar to pictures I'd take.
I like that quick look at the camera. They are smarter that we think they are.
Cute little guy!
Nice close ups!
Very nice shots of the flycatcher! Sad that the dove was eaten, but it's good to see its feathers are being put to good use to help raise new birds.
pretty cool. birds are fascinating when it comes to building a nest.
Well seen! I've noticed feathers in one of our bird houses.
nesting nearby. Goody. Means you'll get to enjoy more of their antics :)
Nest building. So great! What a pretty bird!
Wonderful shots! What a cutie! She reminds me of a bird I saw at my birdbath the other day, and I wonder if I had a new visitor to the yard. She was gone before I could get a picture.
Great views of a really pretty bird, I also like the way that flattened crest looks. Hope you are enjoying your summer.
something sad to go with something nice. miss seeing you!! I'm catching up!hugs to you,Marie
What a great capture of this beautiful little guy (or girl)! I see what you mean about that military haircut :)
Flycatchers are fun to watch while they "work" when catching bugs too!...:)JP
He's incredibly cute!!
It's so nice to follow the birds a hope that we can see the baby-birds when they come ☆
