Here she is!

Here she is!
You can make out the top of her head, her beak, and her tail. I didn't move anything, just pointed the camera through a gap in the things on the shelf, although I suppose she must be quite relaxed about people etc, or she wouldn't have built her nest right there. In some ways this is a safe spot for her, certainly sheltered from weather and predators, but vulnerable if the wrong people notice her, or anyone is careless moving things round on the shelves. (EDIT: This is a close up of the nest in the previous picture. I have added notes now, to help you spot her! She is tucked right down into the nest. I think she is a sparrow).

Oh no I can't! I presume it is her tail bottom left-hand corner? But I can't find a head anywhere.

Ah, ok, I have added two notes to the picture, to identify her better...

I was way out, wasn't I? I thought that beige, leaf-shaped thing was part of her! Thank you for the notes - I've got her now.

Great camouflage! The notes helped a lot. I wonder how many chicks she will have.

I think if the chicks last long enough to leave the nest, they have plenty of places to hide, but it's sadly likely to get knocked off the shelf before that.
