Wile walking under one of our crepe myrtles, I happened upon a rather unusual nest with a narrow beak peering out. Rather than get up close to look, I preferred to zoom in with my phone as best as I could and get a photo.

    I think this might be a Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher nest! They make very pretty lichen-covered nests.

    The nest in my Crepe Myrtle is too high up for a good picture. But will send what I have along with the mess that was made at the bottom of tree. It appears to be a large nest mostly made of branches and leaves. Any ideas? Was suggested it might be a squirrel nest.
