Identify This Bird Nest
I found this nest in a yard on Pine Hill the other day, apparently blown out of a big spruce tree by the wind. I'm wondering what bird made it? At first I thought maybe a hummingbird but I think it's too large for a hummer. My short online search for bird nest guides only found hard copies for sale. It's shown next to a nickel for comparison. The hole in the middle is maybe an inch and a half across and an inch deep. Outside diameter is maybe three inches across, two and a half inches deep. Any guesses as to what kind of bird made this nest?
