Female Red-winged Black Bird with nesting material

Spotted this female red-winged black bird picking up all sort of nesting materials and would perch on a yucca stalk, make couple of loud calls then disappear in a bush. So i waited a few turns till she gets something better than tissue paper. Yeah, it’s a city park – White Rock Lake Winfrey Point.
