2020—Bushtit in the Bushes

The tiny Bushtits are usually well hidden in the bushes and unless they’re splashing around in the fountain, the only evidence of their presence is leaves shaking in the bushes. It is rare to see one in my yard that isn’t completely obscured by the leaves. The Japanese Privet leaves are only about two inches long and the Bushtit, including tail, isn’t much longer. The Bushtits often feed on the tiny bugs on the privets and other trees and shrubs. The webs in this shrub must have caught the attention of this male Bushtit.
