Lightingale Nest

By AlleyCatz
The Lightingale is a bird that comes out mostly at night. She tries to conserve energy and can be very efficient at it.
Watt she feeds on makes her pylon the weight and keeps her switched on to her surroundings.

Edited and tweaked in PS.

Another image taken at Grosmont....when in great company last saturday.

Thanks for the title Mads...Tripple voddy? Wink

I've heard of a Blankbird who keeps forgetting where its nest is - A Dripper with a week bladder - A Mulligatawny Owl who lives on soup - but never heard of a Lightingale that's a new one to me Alley. Wink
