Nesting Reuse

Once in awhile I've seen birds gather twigs for a nest.  Even when I lived in a forested area and was surrounded by wildlife it was rare to see. But, here in a townhouse with a deck railing planter, I'm getting to see it close up.

This blue jay has decided that my planters have the perfect nest building material.  Even birds are pros at reuse projects. She has been here for the last three days collecting coconut husk fibers from last year's planters.  I've tried a few times to get a picture and this morning I think she was too busy to notice me.
