On April 18, 1908, a nest of Western Winter Wren (Nannus hiemalis pacificus) was found in a small huckleberry bush, ready for the inner lining of feathers. On May 24 it contained six freshsggs. On May 7, 1916, by watqhing the bird carrying nesting material, another nest was found among the roots of a fallen tree. When next examined, May 21, it was ready for the inner lining, on May 28 it was in the same condition, and on June 3 it contained one egg and not a bit of lining. On June 11 it was thickly lined with small feathers, and contained six eggs.
