Yesterday (2-13-05) I observed a male Anna's Hummingbird at Green Lake in North Seattle pluck fluff from an old cat tail seed head and fly up into a nearby evergreen tree.I assume this was nest-building material/activity because I can't think what else it could be but both Kaufman (Lives of North American Birds) and Sibley (The Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) state that the nest is built by the female alone. Maybe it was preparations for Valentine's Day.
