Black Phoebe gathering nest material

I watched this Black Phoebe fly to a perch in this location several times then she flew under the overhanging vegetation to gathering nesting material and mud at the bottom of the bank. I expect it is getting it's nesting material right near the water as the vegetation should be easier to pull out of mud than dirt as well as the best place to gather mud for the nest. SeEtta
