It had been two months since I saw my first Nutmeg Mannikin. I saw my second--and first of 2014--at Kit Carson Park in Escondido pulling nesting material from this broken giant grassy-tuft swamp-plant thing (that might not actually be its official name).

And that's all I have to say about this photo.
