You've got mud on your face....

I guess that is necessary, if building something like this....

That is a lot of mud, one mouthful at a time.

Lunchtime walks and photography get tougher as the temps rise, so yesterday I headed to a trail that passes through an underpass. This nest in particular was well lit by sunlight reflected from the water below. While I watched the bird seemed to be engaged in nest maintenance rather than feeding. I couldn't tell if that was just routine, or if the repairs were in advance of an attempt to replace a failed nest.

I wonder if those nests stay nice and cool on a hot day like the inside of an adobe?
