Abstract

I describe a Yellow-crowned Tyrannulet (Tyrannulus elatus) nest built largely of mistletoe seeds, which differs from the cup of plant matter typically constructed by this species. Mistletoe seeds have been observed in the nests of at least two other bird species, but this observation is the first where the nest appeared to be purposely constructed from seeds, possibly to take advantage of their adhesive properties.
