Bird raiding a spider web in March, 2020 in Palo Alto, CA

Recommended Posts

Saw this bird picking things from a spider web, not sure if it was something to eat or collecting the web to be used in her nest?  Any thoughts on this and its ID are appreciated!

Thanks

Ricardo

Agree with Lesser Goldfinch, one species known to use spider webs as one of its nesting materials. In my opinion, this individual was most likely gathering the web as a nesting material.
